Presentations at CAPLA Conference in Banff 2008

October 20, 2008

Don Presant delivered a presentation entitled "Pushing the ePortfolio Envelope"at CAPLA's annual conference. Here is the presentation description:

The vision of the electronic portfolio is rapidly becoming reality, and rapidly evolving at the same time. When your smartphone can capture your ad hoc skills demonstration (or reflection in context), and when you can easily share your media assets on websites like YouTube and Facebook, ePortfolio starts becoming a way of looking at your place in the digital world, rather than being confined to a walled garden in a post-secondary institution. We will look at this phenomenon through the lens of international practice and examples from projects based out of Learning Agents innovative eStudios in Winnipeg.

Another workshop was designed to help other provinces learn from the success of MPLAN, the Manitoba PLA Network:

Building a Vibrant Provincial PLAR Network
Presenters: Don Presant, MPLAN Ann Pedersen, MPLAN
Facilitators: Dianne Conrad, Athabasca University, Alberta; Wendy Watson, University of the Fraser Valley, BC

Canadian PLAR practitioners and researchers who might envision a network of collegial interaction and support need look no further than Manitoba's MPLAN organization. Founded in 1996, MPLAN Manitoba Prior Learning Assessment Network)offers PLAR professionals a comprehensive network of resources and collaborative opportunities. This session aims to introduce the successful MPLAN model to other Canadian practitioners who fantasize that they too, some day, might benefit from membership in similar organizations in their particular region
