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.
