AePR Call for Papers

The Association for Authentic, Experiential and Evidence-Based Learning (AAEEBL) ePortfolio Review (AePR) invites you to submit articles and reports covering the broad area of ePortfolio use.  We publish articles about pedagogy, research, technical, and organizational issues. Our readership includes ePortfolio practitioners, administrators, and students. Our mission is to serve the needs of the global ePortfolio community and promote portfolio learning as a major way to transform higher education.

The AePR is a theme-based journal; therefore, acceptance is competitive. After a paper is accepted for a specific issue, the author(s) is(are) paired with one of our peer reviewers. Papers submitted for a current issue may be considered for a subsequent issue if the editorial board feel it is a better fit for a future theme.

Current Theme:
ePortfolios and Transformations: Students, Curriculum, Assessment, Institutions
(July 24, 2019) – In conjunction with the AAEEBL Conference
Upcoming Themes
  • ePortfolio Platforms (Spring 2020)
  • AAEEBL Conference Theme (Fall 2020)
Article Types
We’re particularly interested in the following types of articles:
  • Longer articles (3,000 to 5,000 words) about practical research, administrative reports, or case studies with generalizable results – again, not as peer-reviewed research but as reports.
  • Short articles (1,000 to 1,500 words) discussing a case study at an institution/course, offering advice and opinions to other ePortfolio practitioners.
  • How-to articles, tutorials on specific tools or approaches (500 to 1,500 words).
  • Interviews (500 to 1000 words) with key individuals directly involved with the use of ePortfolios.
  • Announcements (up to 300 words) of items regarding the use of ePortfolios in the field.

2019 AAEEBL Annual Meeting

The Association for Authentic, Experiential, and Evidence-Based Learning (AAEEBL), partnering with the Association of American Colleges & Universities (AAC&U), invites you to attend the 2019 Annual Meeting “ePortfolios and Transformations: Students, Curriculum, Assessment, Institutions” at Bronx Community College, New York City from July 15-18, 2019.  Register HERE!.

ePortfolios and Transformations

Since the turn of the 21stcentury, ePortfolios have been at the heart of many transformations in higher education and beyond – that of learner experience and engagement, the design of new curricular approaches, the opportunity to consider authentic evidence for assessment of learning, and the promise of institutional change and coherence to support learning across the learning career.  In 2019, we look forward to sessions that encourage attendees to explore the ways ePortfolios have contributed to the transformation of our students, the curriculum, assessment practices, and our institutional missions and goals

There are few communities in higher education as warm and welcoming as the ePortfolio community.  If you would like to learn more about ePortfolios, the 11th high impact practice, and how they can transform learning, students, and faculty development on your campus, join us in New York City in July.

The At-A-Glance schedule is available and the final program will be available to help you plan your trip in May.  In addition, the Special Interest Groups AAEEBL unveiled in 2017 will provide the themes of the conference:

  • Practices & Pedagogies
    These sessions focus on specific classroom curricula, approaches, techniques or procedures used to teach ePortfolios; in carrying out authentic, experiential and evidence-based learning; or in learning/teaching and assessment practices in general.  This can also include work specifically focused on educational/faculty development.
  • Research
    These sessions share published or ongoing research about ePortfolio use, design or implementation; authentic, experiential and evidence-based learning; or learning/teaching and assessment.
  • Technology
    These sessions focus on the selection, implementation, or evaluation of specific kinds of technology in the service of ePortfolios; authentic, experiential and evidence-based learning; or learning/teaching and assessment.

Each session will be tagged for beginner, intermediate, and expert audiences.  The full schedule will be available May 2019.

If you have questions about connecting with the AAEEBL community at the conference, send an email to connect@aaeebl.org.

ePortfolios and Transformations: Students, Curriculum, Assessment, Institutions

Since the turn of the 21stcentury, ePortfolios have been at the heart of many transformations in higher education and beyond – that of learner experience and engagement, the design of new curricular approaches, the opportunity to consider authentic evidence for assessment of learning, and the promise of institutional change and coherence to support learning across the learning career.  In 2019, we look forward to sessions that encourage attendees to explore the ways ePortfolios have contributed to the transformation of our students, the curriculum, assessment practices, and our institutional missions and goals.

Proposals could consider, but are not limited to:

  • ePorfolio as a High Impact Practice 
  • Student learning and engagement with ePortfolios
  • ePortfolio and learning designs (curricular/co-curricular)
  • Explorations of classroom, program, and/or institutional assessment
  • Faculty Development
  • ePortfolio outside the “normal” classroom or institution
  • Possible futures for ePortfolios

MAKING A SUBMISSION: 

Presenters will be asked to choose one of the following section types, identify the Special Interest Group (SIG) that best reflects their session (Practices & Pedagogies, Research, Technologies), and to provide an abstract (250 words) and session description (500 words).

 Session Types (please select 1): 

  1. Workshops: AAEEBL workshops are intended to enhance hands-on skills and broaden attendees’ perspectives on ePortfolios at the Annual Meeting. Workshops should be interactive and designed to introduce a rigorous framework for learning a new area or to provide advanced training in an area. Submissions will be selected on the basis of the facilitator’s description of the learning outcomes, participatory design of the session and the proposed workshop facilitation, alongside its contribution to the overall conference program and AAEEBL mission (1 hour)
  2. AAEEBL Ignite:An AAEEBL Annual Ignite presentation is part of a 1-hour session where 8 “igniters” provoke and open dialogue with the community through a fast-paced and image-only PowerPoint presentation. This 5-minute (20 slides advancing every 15 seconds) “ignite” should focus on innovative teaching ideas, creative project processes, and/or developed project outcomes that explore the SIGs.  
  3. Concise papers: An AAEEBL Annual concise paper provides a forum for discussion of key directions related to one of the SIGs in research, informed practice, works in progress, reports on specialized topics, pilot studies, or brief reports on innovative practice in technology-supported teaching and learning (25 minutes). 
  4. Poster Presentations:Posters may focus on a range of projects, case studies, and research and development initiatives that explore opportunities for conference participants to discuss their work. To extend our learning at the AAEEBL Annual, we invite all presenters to present both a concurrent session and a poster proposal. Posters should emphasize the problem, what was done, and why the work is important to the community.
