Hi Dennis -- I'm glad to see you've included eportfolios in your collection of resources on your Scoop.It page. I wanted to share AAEEBL with you in case you'd like to visit our Scoop.It page or write about AAEEBL. So you can get to know us better, I'm pasting some info below. All best, Judy Batson
The Association for Authentic, Experiential and Evidence-Based Learning (AAEEBL, pronounced "able") is a non-profit, professional organization for the world eportfolio community. ePortfolio community leaders recognized in 2008 that eportfolio, as a technology, and as a body of theory and practices, had emerged as a promising influence and direction for education. As such, we decided eportfolio needed its own professional association to catalyze the implementation of eportfolios in education. We deeply believed in the value of eportfolio for learning, assessment and life-long career success. Therefore AAEEBL was formed in 2009 within the existing eportfolio community to serve educators and the eportfolio industry.
AAEEBL's mission is to deepen learning and to transform institutions with electronic portfolios. A service organization, AAEEBL offers conferences, resources, community connections, a newsletter, and consulting to institutional members and corporate affiliates. With affiliations and collaborations among a wide array of world-wide eportfolio initiatives, projects and organizations, AAEEBL helps delineate the new field of eportfolio scholarship and research. Support from institutional memberships and from Corporate Affiliates, along with grants, make it possible for AAEEBL to provide strategic leadership.
