AAEEBL will hold its annual conference at the Hynes Convention Center, Boston, MA, from July 27-30, 2015.

We invite proposals that reflect on the core learning values included in AAEEBL's full name: The Association for Authentic, Experiential and Evidence-Based Learning. Higher education is moving from segmentation of learning experiences toward a more coherent structure that emphasizes learner-initiated processes. Creating ways to establish authentic evidence about learning and to yield data for improving learning and institutional outcomes are more important than ever. In this context, we are part of a transformative moment in learning. The goal of AAEEBL 2015 is to address three key targets for transformation that, if put into practice with ePortfolios, can help assure quality and recognize a variety of learning needs: 1) Evidence-Based Learning; 2) Personalized Learning; and 3) Holistic Assessment.

Tracks for AAEEBL 2015:
*Tailoring a Good Fit for Learner Success and Employability
*Advancing Enlightened Use of ePortfolio Technologies: The Educator and Staff Challenge
*Building Capacity and Structures
*Supporting Multimodal Learning with ePortfolios
*Data-Driven Evaluation of ePortfolios in an Age of Increased Accountability: Research & Assessment
*Aiming for Holistic, Learning-Oriented Assessment Inside and Outside the Classroom
*Telling Tales of Evidence-Based Lessons-Learned Including False Starts, Road Bumps and Lights at the End of the ePortfolio Experience Tunnel
*ePortfolio Platforms: Case Studies of Selection Considerations, Implementation Processes and Targeted Ongoing Support
