Hi everyone,

The deadline for submitting a presentation proposal for this year's Eportfolio Forum has been extended to 22 June 2020.

At this stage, it is not quite clear whether the event can take place in-person at Deakin University or remain an online event. Being an online event, makes it possible for more people to participate and submit presentations (Hello everyone outside of Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand who was thinking of going to Melbourne).

The ePortfolios Organising Committee are offering to provide presenters/facilitators whatever support they need to present/facilitate online, including: 

  • online workshop / facilitation tips/tricks
  • planning templates
  • training leading up to the Forum
  • an online moderator to assist with each session

Put your thinking caps on and submit a proposal.

Hi everyone,

The decision is made: this year's Eportfolio Forum will take place online. While we won't be able to catch up in person, there are a couple of advantages to this format:

  • Everyone can participate, no matter where you live (time zones may prevent a full attendance unless you have coffee at the ready)
  • It is cheaper to attend

Below is the announcement from the organising team.
