The New York Regional ePortfolio Conference will be held on March 2 and 3 at Pace University’s downtown campus and is co-sponsored by Pace and three CUNY campuses – LaGuardia, Guttman, and the Macaulay Honors College.
The conference theme is “Re-bundling Higher Education: High Impact ePortfolio Practice and the New Digital Ecosystem.” Suggested topics include digital badging, integrative social ePortfolio pedagogy, professional development, advisement, peer learning, authentic assessment, analytics and more. This is an excellent opportunity to share classroom, departmental, or college-wide practices while learning from colleagues who are actively exploring ways that ePortfolio supports student, faculty, and institutional learning.
At Baruch many faculty members use Blackboard or Blogs@Baruch so we do not have widespread use of ePortfolios. However, there are interesting projects on many CUNY campuses and CUNY is considered a national leader in ePortfolio practice.
If you are interested in learning more about ePortfolios, conference registration fees are quite low —$25 for faculty and staff (payable at the door) and free for students. Even if you do not make a presentation, you may want to take advantage of the opportunity attend to learn more about other faculty and student projects. If you would be interested in presenting, the deadline for proposal submissions is this Friday, December 2 (more info in link below).
Proposal submission and additional conference information can be found on Macualay’s website: http://macaulay.cuny.edu/eportfolios/rebundling17/
