Digital Ethics Task Force

Sign 'Welcome, we are open' to invite ePortfolio enthusiasts to apply to become members of the task force, deadline is 15 September 2022

In response to rising concerns about digital ethics in ePortfolio practice, AAEEBL created the Digital Ethics Task Force charged with researching and articulating research-based practices for ePortfolios in 2019. The Task Force accepts new participants in July of each year. Visit the most current version of our work, Digital Ethics Principles in ePortfolios, version 2, for guidance and support on implementing ePortfolios with digital ethics.

During its first year, the Task Force developed version 1 of the Digital Ethics Principles in ePortfolios. This included a set of 10 principles. Digital Ethics Principles in ePortfolios: Version 1, which supports ePortfolio decision-making and practices across different locations and contexts, enabling important principles, strategies, scenarios, and additional resources to be accessed both interactively and in text formats. In year two, the Task Force revised the Principles, with added attention to how digital ethical literacy intersects with the mass transition to online learning due to COVID-19. A further three comprehensive principles emerged.

In addition to the iterative revision of the Principles, the Task Force works to contribute to the scholarship on digital ethics through publications, conference attendance, workshops, and other professional networking opportunities. Visit our ‘Digital Ethics’ events page for opportunities to engage with members of the Task Force.
