The AAEEBL ePortfolio Review, Volume 1, Number 1
Friday, November 11, 2016
Posted by: Marc Zaldivar
We are very excited to announce the inaugural issue of the AAEEBL ePortfolio Review. Designed to provide space for emerging thinking about ePortfolio research and practice, as well as a publication opportunity for those working in and with ePortfolio, the AePR focuses on timely, important topics written by leaders in the field. The articles may focus on a current controversy in our community that perhaps cannot be quickly or expeditiously addressed through a careful research process or on specific topics of interest to the wider ePortfolio community (for instance, assessment, high impact practices, etc.).
This issue of the AEPR is available for download on the AAEEBL website (http://aaeebl.org). You can find it at this address: http://www.aaeebl.org/page/AEPRIssues.
In addition to the release of Volume 1, Number 1, we have a current Request For Proposals for Volume 1, Number 2, which will be published in March 2017. The current RFP has a deadline of November 30, 2016, so submit your ideas right away! Current RFP information is available on the AAEEBL website at http://www.aaeebl.org/page/aepr_rfp.

- Empowering learners with ePortfolios. by Tracy Penny-Light.
- An interactive ePortfolio synergises student learning. by Jia-Lin Yang
- Using ePortfolios instead of an LMS: a model to promote life-ling learning and professional development. by Eric Howd.
