Last chance: Shortened (peer reviewed) papers submissions – 2020 Eportfolio Forum Online (+more)

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to submit a Shortened (peer reviewed) paper for the ninth Eportfolio Forum which will be held online on 29-30 October 2020 (and if possible, at Deakin University (Burwood campus) in Melbourne).

We have ‘shortened’ the requirements for the Shortened (peer reviewed) paper to be a 500-750 word (+ abstract) published peer reviewed paper. 

This year’s theme is: Digital Identity – Ethics and Experience – which in light of more people working and studying online, the ePortfolios Australia Organising Committee believe there is an opportunity to share what remote teaching and learning has been like this year through a Shortened (peer reviewed) paper.  

As the 2020 Eportfolio Forum will be online, we hope to be able to attract more oversea submissions and presentations (15 mins + 5 mins Q&A – Live or pre-recorded).

Sub-themes include:

  • Digital ethics and digital literacy
  • Sustainability, ongoing practice and well being
  • Collaboration and research
  • Innovation and entrepreneurship
  • Career / Employability / Work Integrated Learning (WIL)

The Call for Online Proposals are available here.

Call for Shortened (peer reviewed) paper proposals will close on 22 June 2020 to allow for the writing and review period before the Forum.

We are also seeking other proposal types such:

  • 20×20 presentation
  • Digitally Interactive Poster
  • Intensive workshop
  • In-depth workshop
  • Facilitate a professional conversation

However, the Call for proposals for these types of proposals will close on 20 July 2020.

Free resources: Defining digital ethics when using eportfolios webinar – May 2020

Review the recording from the Defining digital ethics when using eportfolios webinar – May 2020, where ePortfolios Australia and AAEEBL collaborated to facilitate a discussion around:

  • What does digital ethics and eportfolios mean?
  • What does digital ethics and eportfolios look like now?, and
  • What does digital ethics and eportfolios look like when it is working well?

Panelists and MCs provided some wonderful insights on these questions, and there was some interesting ‘chat’ discussions as well.

Please share these resources with others who you think would find them useful.
