ePiC 2013 Call for Contributions Open

Following the rich discussions triggered by the presence of Mozilla Open Badges at ePIC 2012, the 11th ePortfolio and Identity Conference intends to explore further the concept of 'openness' in relation to the themes traditionally addressed by the conference. In particular, as ePortfolio and Open Badges are containers of personal data, what is their place in what some predict as the next big revolution:  open personal data?

Authors are invited to address ePortfolio and identity issues in relation to:

  • open ePortfolio and open badges
  • open identity and open data
  • open learning and open educational resources
  • open assessment and open accreditation
  • open employment and open business
  • open architecture and open infrastructure

Key conference questions, in relation to ePortfolio and identity, may include (but are not limited to):

  • How to support individual and community learning?
  • How to contribute to the identity construction process?
  • How to facilitate the recognition and accreditation learning?
  • How to support lifelong learning, orientation and employability?
  • How to support the acquisition of 21st century skills?
  • How to create an ePortfolio architecture and infrastructure?

Healthcare Track

For the fourth time, the international ePortfolio & Identity conference will have ePortfolios in healthcare as a major theme and papers are invited on all aspects of ePortfolios in healthcare. 20 abstracts and the 5 best papers will be published in the International Journal of Clinical Skills (IJOCS)
