Question Title

The Association for Authentic, Experiential and Evidence Based Learning (AAEEBL) is conducting a survey to gain a better understanding of the motivations, benefits, strengths, and challenges of ePortfolio implementations across diverse institutions. This survey will be the first in a series of research activities aimed at examining how ePortfolios are being promoted in higher education globally and identifying the conditions conducive to successful implementation of ePortfolios and associated pedagogies and assessment strategies.

To help us, we invite you to respond to these questions from your own individual, personal and professional vantage, focusing in particular on a single ePortfolio project or program with which you are involved. This survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete.

You are not expected to feel responsible for speaking for your program or for what may be several ePortfolio initiatives at your institution. However, you are encouraged to forward this survey to your colleagues who may also be working with ePortfolios on your campus so that we may include a diverse range of ePortfolio-related initiatives.

Preliminary findings from this survey will be shared and discussed at the annual AAEEBL meeting in Boston this upcoming July as well as in several follow-up webinars and online chats in order to ensure that a broader international audience is able to participate and contribute to an ongoing discussion of these issues.
