Preview of ePortfolio Maastricht 2008

Don Presant has been acting as voluntary reviewer of contribution proposals for the upcoming international ePortfolio & Digital Identity 2008 conference in Maastricht, The Netherlands, scheduled 22-24 October.

This has been a great opportunity to witness the evolution of current and emerging practice in ePortfolios.

Proposed topics include:

  • Video portfolios for teaching
  • Avatar ePortfolios in synthetic worlds such as Second Life
  • Employability ePortfolios for vocational occupations
  • Regional and national strategies for interoperable ePortfolios
  • M-portfolios using mobile technologies
  • ePortfolio for immigrants

This is just a very thin sample from a very rich offering.

Although this takes place right after CAPLA's annual conference in Banff (Oct 19-21), requiring a long day of travel in between, it's definitely worth a look. And Maastricht is a very interesting corner of Europe.
