Overview: For the third year, AAEEBL members and eportfolio practitioners from around the world will gather at the Seaport World Trade Center on stunning Boston Harbor for the AAEEBL Annual Conference (July 16-19). Once again, AAEEBL is co-locating with Campus Technology, and attendees will be welcome to attend either AAEEBL or CT sessions. Highlights include:
- This year we will hold our first AAEEBL members’ meeting.
- All keynote sessions will be interactive, not “just talks.”
- Concurrent session rooms will be set up in the round, not in ranks to encourage participation.
- In keeping with the participatory nature of this conference, featured will be approximately 30 poster sessions positioned with a special snack set-up to encourage interaction.
- By popular demand, “conversations with…” sessions will return presenting opportunities for informal discussion with keynote speakers and other eportfolio leaders.
- Keynoters will focus on fundamental issues related to learning and influencing policy-makers in education.
- Our local arrangements institution will be Tufts University.
Who should attend?
CIOs, provosts, deans, educators, faculty leaders, eportfolio managers, technology directors, assessment leaders, faculty development staff, teaching and learning center staff, and librarians among others.
