10 Great Reasons to Attend the AAEEBL 2012 Annual Conference
Based on feedback from last year’s conference participants, here are some ideas about what you can expect to gain from joining AAEEBL in Boston, July 16-19 at the Boston Harbor Hotel and World Trade Center.

 1.  You’ll find a “strong focus on integrative learning” with emphasis on “frameworks for reflection.”
 2.  “Highlights were sessions on collaboration and reflection.”
 3.  “The conference and connections I made lifted my spirits and gave me new directions… onward and upward!”
 4.  Learn how to “get faculty to participate in eportfolio initiative” with “faculty development ideas.”
 5.  Find out “key things to look for in an eportfolio program.” (“We will now be able to fine-tune our eportfolio rollout.”)
 6.  “Great keynote speakers!”
 7.  “This conference was inspirational and helpful to me in practical ways.”
 8.  Stay up-to-date with “developing an eportfolio scholarly research agenda.”
 9.  “I can participate in a pilot of eportfolios in a more informed way.”
 10. “Helpful focus on learning outcomes and assessment”

Also, we’ve been told that the AAEEBL Annual Conference is an essential conference to attend if you’re using eportfolios.  It’s one of the best chances each year to gather with colleagues from around the world who use eportfolios and to share with and learn from each other.  We’ve added new features to this year’s conference that will provide more opportunities for interactivity in session, for conversations and for networking.
