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 workshop, you will explore the Digital Ethics in ePortfolios Principle ‘Respect Author Rights and Re-use Permissions’ to understand best practices for re-use and representation of other people’s work in their portfolios. Copyright, attribution of work, plagiarism, and confidentiality of private information are recurring important topics to address.
Your workshop facilitators Christine Slade and Kristina Hoeppner will guide you on strategies for applying this principle successfully in your portfolio work supporting learners and engaging you in a conversation around good practice and challenges that you have encountered.
We look forward to sharing work done by the Task Force with you and learning from you to expand the knowledge base that we as a portfolio community share on this topic.
