AAC&U 2023 Virtual Institute on ePortfolios – Oct 17

Posted by American Association of Colleges & Universities on September 20, 2022

In January 2023, the American Association of Colleges & Universities (AAC&U), will again lead the Institute on ePortfolios utilizing a year-of-engagement model. The Institute on ePortfolios provides a year-long, online engagement opportunity for campus and/or state system teams seeking to actualize an ambitious strategy to broaden student engagement with ePortfolios. This new model directly engages the ePortfolio Institute teams throughout the 2023 calendar year via in-person and virtual interactions as participants’ ePortfolio implementation plans are developed and then put into practice.

Designed for those seeking to instantiate ePortfolios beyond a single course or major, this institute will help teams of faculty, staff, and administrators design and implement ePortfolio processes and technologies in large scale adoptions. Campuses and/or systems considering ePortfolios for general education or program-wide purposes, or to capture the full range of the undergraduate student experience, would be among those ideally suited for this institute. This institute also represents an opportunity for a campus to develop formal collaborations between academic and student affairs in the service of student learning and success.

Participating teams will design their own implementation plan for bridging curricular and/or co-curricular learning with ePortfolios. Institute faculty will serve as partners for campus plan development. Campus teams can expect consultative opportunities to interact with Institute faculty virtually throughout the Spring and Fall terms as their plan progresses and is implemented. In July 2023, AAEEBL’s Annual Meeting will provide an opportunity for ePortfolio Institute teams to reconvene face-to-face with select Institute faculty to examine implementation progress and challenges. AAC&U’s 2024 Forum on Open Learning and ePortfolios in January of that year will host closing activities and events for the Institute.

The deadline for applying to the 2023 Institute on ePortfolios is Monday, October 17, 2022.
