Digital Ethics: Evaluation workshop
April 11, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDTFree
Since mid-2019, the Association for Authentic, Experiential and Evidence-Based Learning (AAEEBL) has investigated digital ethics and ePortfolios via a specially created task force. The work resulted in principles promoting ethical ePortfolio practices to educators, staff, students, and platform providers. In this webinar series, task force members discuss individual principles with participants.
While ePortfolios can be a transformative space for students, the public and digital nature of ePortfolios necessitates critical examination of the ethical implications of this practice. ePortfolios are often known primarily as evaluation tools, and the wide range of ePortfolios uses creates divergent learning situations for students to navigate.
As faculty design student activities for evaluation, faculty should focus on not just the artifacts students create but also how the criteria for evaluation will be communicated to students. Since evaluation processes should ideally include both educators and students, educators need to make explicit how evaluation criteria align with assignment or course objectives or should develop criteria in collaboration with students. Even as more students are familiar with both ePortfolios and reflective practices, it is vital that faculty creating assignments and assessments privilege students’ need for meaningful feedback, contextualized evaluation, and opportunities for choices on self-representation in ePortfolios.
This workshop will help participants define practices related to evaluation and assessment, while they develop tools that focus on ethical evaluation practices.
Your facilitators are:
- Morgan Gresham, PhD, Assoc. Professor of English & Area Director PTC, MA/PhD in RC, University of South Florida St. Petersburg, U.S.A.
- Theresa Conefrey, PhD, Senior Lecturer, Director PE Program, Santa Clara University, U.S.A.
By the end of each workshop, participants will be able to…
- Discuss definitions of evaluation and assessment, and identify how ePortfolios are used as evaluation tools at their institutions.
- Develop and list strategies to enhance ePortfolio evaluation practices.
- Identify practices that encourage ethical assignment and evaluation constructions that speak to identity, representation, and fairness from course inception.
- Use the evaluation scenarios in the Principles as a jumping-off point to identify the types of artifacts that can be housed in ePortfolios to demonstrate specific course-related SLOs.
- Participants may contribute additional scenarios to discuss ePortfolio design constraints that shape evaluation and assessment strategies.
The workshop takes place on Monday, 11 April 2022, 2-4pm EST (check your time zone).
