Eportfolio Ireland: The Potential and Practice of Eportfolio

We are delighted to announce that Eportfolio Ireland invites you to another free half-day seminar/workshop on Monday November 11th at Dublin City University’s (DCU) St. Patricks Campus. The workshop, which follows after the ICDE World Conference on Online Learning (3-7th November,) will run from 9.30am to 1:00pm.ep-logo-1.jpg

Kristina Hoeppner, from Catalyst IT, New Zealand and guru on all things eportfolio has kindly agreed to keynote on the day. Following that, we hope to facilitate a “Connect & Converse” session to share our own eportfolio practices. The value of the Eportfolio Ireland community is nested in these events where we can share our collective experiences and seek to learn from one another.

The format of Connect & Converse is a 10-minute presentation/discussion in small groups as participants rotate around the room (a speed dating format, if you will!). If you would like to share what you have been doing with eportfolio in your institution, what you would like to try, or would simply welcome feedback on your initiative from others in the field, please just send a 5 line description of what you would like to discuss by emailing Lisa Donaldson:

Please note that tables for this event are limited, so please contact Lisa as soon as possible if you would like to contribute a brief talk and register here to reserve your place.

ICDE World Conference Update – First September Newsletter

In this issue we share news that Professor George Siemens will give the final  keynote address on Thursday 7th November as we reflect on the conference theme, and related big questions, in looking towards the future. George is well known internationally for this work in the area of online education and is generally regarded as one of the world’s leading “big picture” thought leaders in terms of new learning futures.

The latest newsletter also makes the case why you need to be in Dublin in November in order to help shape the future of online education. Set against the wider backdrop of the conference theme of “Transforming Lives and Societies” and the Sustainable Development Goals (SGDS), the newsletter explains why your contribution is important as we seek to harness both individual expertise and collective experience of participants to help envision better futures–for all.
