Institute Goals and Action Plans

Teams attending the Institute will complete preparatory work to maximize their learning when they participate in an online kick-off event prior to AAC&U's 2022 Forum on Open Learning and ePortfolios.  Each team will complete an implementation plan over the course of the initial convening. Teams will use their time together to discover new approaches and to create, strategize, and rehearse their plans. The Institute schedule at AAC&U's 2022 Forum on Open Learning and ePortfolios features:

  • daily team time to work on action plans;
  • individual team consultations with Institute faculty;
  • plenary sessions, facilitated discussions, and interactions with other campus teams; and
  • reflection and skill-building sessions

After AAC&U's 2022 Forum on Open Learning and ePortfolios, scheduled opportunities to re-connect virtually and at several meetings throughout the calendar year (AAEEBL's 2022 Annual Meeting, NASPA Conferences, AAC&U's 2023 Forum on Open Learning and ePortfolios) are also part of the schedule.
