Location: 2020/2021 Institute on ePortfolios
The kick off event for this year long Institute experience will be co-located with the AAEEBL Annual Meeting at Salt Lake Community College (SLCC). AAEEBL is the international professional development organization for ePortfolio practitioners and researchers. Unlike most Institutes, the ePortfolio Institute will have multiple “locational” opportunities. Following the face-to-face kick-off meeting, participants will each work with a primary Institute Faculty Liaison the remainder of the academic year. In the Fall and Spring, participants will have two formal virtual opportunities to reconnect with other participants and Institute faculty. A second face-to-face meeting will occur at AAC&U’s Forum on Digital Learning and ePortfolios in January in conjunction with AAC&U’s Annual Meeting in Seattle, WA. The third Institute partner organization, NASPA, will also provide opportunities for ePortfolio Institute participants to present at their Spring student affairs meeting.
SLCC is Utah's largest college with the most diverse student body. It serves more than 60,000 students on 10 campuses and with online classes. It provides flexible scheduling and serves all ages and a wide array of interests, including an exceptional range of academic and career-oriented options. SLCC requires, in all General Education courses, students to create an ePortfolio that contains their significant assignments as well as reflections about those assignments. The ePortfolio also allows students to document their goals and extra-curricular activities. SLCC provides an ideal context within which to launch the 2020/2021 Institute on ePortfolios.
SLCC is located near the Great Salt Lake, the largest saltwater lake in the western hemisphere, and fantastic outdoor locations, including the Wasatch Mountains, the Oquirrh Range, and the Great Basin. The campus is located approximately 11.6 miles from the Salt Lake City International Airport. Salt Lake City is easily accessible by air and serves as a hub for key airlines. For more information on airlines serving the city, please visit the Salt Lake City International Airport web site.
