Join Malcolm Brown and Veronica Diaz as they moderate this webinar with Gary Brown and Helen Chen. According to ECAR’s annual study of undergraduate students and IT, seven times as many students reported using e-portfolios in 2012 to facilitate their academic success as compared to 2010 (52% versus 7%). To better understand this marked growth, researchers have employed both quantitative and qualitative methods to investigate how e-portfolio practice by institutions, faculty, and students is evolving in higher education.
This webinar will highlight emerging findings from several sources including the annual membership survey of the Association for Authentic, Experiential, and Evidence-Based Learning (AAEEBL) and LaGuardia Community College’s Connect to Learning project. With a focus on how different methodological approaches are resulting in diverse insights into e-portfolio practice as well as informing new research directions for the field of e-portfolios, this webinar will engage attendees in a conversation about outlining a research agenda for e-portfolio practice and what kinds of methods and approaches would be the most effective in addressing these issues.
