The ePortfolios Australia Organising Committee and AAEEBL Digital Ethics Task Force are pleased to announce this workshop.

The workshop

In this blended workshop, Christine Slade, Megan Mize, and Sarah Zurhellen will introduce participants to the ‘Principle of Labor Visibility’: in what ways are work, time, and effort invisible and unrewarded as it relates to ePortfolio practitioners and creators?

By first introducing and situating the principle as critical to ePortfolio projects, we intend to engage participants in a lively discussion about what constitutes work in the ePortfolio space, how they conduct and conceive of that work, how they’re recognized and/or compensated for that work, and how we, as a field, can develop and maintain ethical expectations for the labor of ePortfolio practitioners and creators.

The facilitators

She was a member of the TEQSA-funded team of experts who delivered national academic integrity workshops, under the leadership of Professor Tracey Bretag, and the accompanying toolkit of resources.

Christine holds a PhD critiquing institutional capacity to address complex challenges, and a postgraduate qualification in academic practice. In May 2018, Christine was recognized as a Principal Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (HEA), UK, for sustained strategic impact on teaching and learning at inter/national and institutional levels.

She is a member of the UQ Digital Health Network sponsored by the Global Change Institute, the organizing committee for the Australian ePortfolio Forum and webinars, and the international Association of Authentic, Experiential and Evidence-Based Learning Digital Ethics Task Force. Christine enjoys working with undergraduate students in short-term teaching and learning research projects.
