Beyond the Bubble Test

Register for this webinar session
Pathbrite addresses a key challenge for educators – holistic assessment of student cognition, understanding, comprehension and knowledge. Traditional learning "tools" have not kept up with the rapidly changing pace of technology to support how we assess students’ mastery of academic subjects, improve their learning outcomes, showcase job readiness and collect evidence for institutional accreditation.
Beginning Wednesday, January 30th, AAEEBL (Association for Authentic, Experiential, and Evidence-Based Learning) and EPAC (Electronic Portfolio Action and Communication) kick off another collaborative series of provocative webinar sessions featuring electronic portfolios for teaching and learning in higher education. AAEEBL and EPAC are pleased to present this free 2013 webinar series as a service to the global eportfolio community. To learn more about the webinar series and the two organizations behind the effort, visit the Enabling Deep Learning webpage.
Please join them online for learning and conversation starting January 30, Wednesday, 10 a.m. PST/1 p.m. EST, for a presentation by Pathbrite CEO, Heather Hiles: "Beyond the Bubble Test." Registration is required. Link to registration from the AAEEBL homepage or from the webinar landing page. A link to the online location will be emailed prior to sessions.
Progress on the XML data standards for academic ePortfolios took an unexpected turn recently with the sudden, tragic death of one of its primary contributors, Joseph Giroux, in August.
His significant contribution to the work of the Postsecondary Electronic Standards Council (PESC) Academic ePortfolio Workgroup over the past year has allowed the project to move forward towards its goals and objectives.
In a recent update on the status of their schema development work, Don Phillips, Project Director, commented on Joseph's contribution to the project. "Our project would not be where it is today without [Joseph's] dedication, insight, and curiosity."
