Schedule at a Glance

Institute Goals and Action Plans

Teams attending the Institute will complete preparatory work to maximize their learning when they participate in the online kick-off event at AAC&U's 2021 Forum on Digital 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 2021 Forum on Digital 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 2021 Forum on Digital Learning and ePortfolios, scheduled opportunities to re-connect virtually and at several meetings throughout the calendar year (AAEEBL's 2021 Annual Meeting, NASPA Conferences, AAC&U's 2022 Forum on Digital Learning and ePortfolios) are also part of the schedule.
