AAEEBL will hold its annual conference at the Hynes Convention Center, Boston, MA, from July 28-31, 2014.

The conference will explore how ePortfolios and information technology fundamentally alter how people learn and how "alternative" learning opportunities--experiential learning, service learning, internships and more--have moved from the fringes to the center on many campuses. ePortfolios in particular offer a way for higher education to move toward a new paradigm, which is not only "vocationalization" or "tracking student outcomes toward learning goals" but a sweeping new way to learn and to credential learning. This conference will examine evidence of change in courses, programs, and institutions because of eportfolios and what changes seem most promising or influential to bring about engaged learning.
