ePortfolios for Learning, Qualification Recognition and Workplace Competency in 2012 – A Global Perspective
Presenter: Don Presant, Learning Agents
Don Presant, an ePortfolio evangelist since 2004, will engage us in a fast-paced tour of international ePortfolio practice in 2012. The presentation 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 the 3 international ePortfolio conferences that took place in 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 presentation 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 YouTube and LinkedIn.
