Join AAEEBL Board Members (Helen Chen, Candyce Reynolds, Kevin Kelly and Tracy Penny Light) as they introduce the conference.

”Doing It Right (or Doing the Right Thing) in a Changing World: Considering the Role of Portfolio Pedagogy in Pivots to Online or Blended Learning Environments”

This week we explore the ways that portfolio pedagogies can support effective learning in any environment, while paying special attention to the affordances of the online environment for both learners and teachers. Participants will collaborate to identify opportunities and challenges in their contexts for leveraging these practices, with special consideration given to the importance of “doing the right thing” in a changing world. Registrants will receive an email with links to all activities by 9am ET on Monday. Links to register for events and to collaborative activities can also be found below. If you do not receive an email, please contact us at connect@aaeebl.org
