ePortfolios for Learning, Qualification Recognition and Workplace Competency in 2012 - A Global Perspective
Don Presant, an ePortfolio evangelist since 2004, will engage participants in a fast-paced tour of international ePortfolio practice in 2012. The workshop will be based on knowledge of innovative work in Canada, online connections with the global ePortfolio community and will also bring the latest news and developments from these three international ePortfolio conferences scheduled for July 2012:
- Mahara UK 2012 in Lancaster, England
- the 10-year old ePortfolio and Identity Conference in London (ePIC 2012, formerly EIfEL)
- the Association for Authentic, Experiential and Evidence-Based Learning conference in Boston (AAEEBL 2012)
The workshop will draw on the latest research and case studies from these conferences to explore the intersection of ePortfolios with the employability of adults in transition, workplace learning, immigrant integration, professional development, self-directed learning and Personal Learning Environments and performance support. Special topics will include Mozilla's revolutionary new Open Badges initiative, the Mahara Open Source ePortfolio, and the impact of multimedia and mobile technologies and Web 2.0 applications such as Facebook and LinkedIn..See the presentation and support material in Don Presant's ePortfolio
