WILNZ/ACEN Webinar: Digital Ethics and Portfolios

Portfolios are created increasingly electronically, be that portfolios for internships, work placements, or other WIL activities, and also showcases. Especially when portfolios are made available publicly, students and lecturers need to be aware of the implications and consider digital ethics. This comes in the form of copyright, protection of personal information, security, and accessibility to name but a few.

In this presentation I will introduce the topic of digital ethics in portfolio creation to the audience and demonstrate how Mahara, the open source ePortfolio platform, can support digital ethics. I will also introduce the AAEEBL (Association for Authentic, Experiential, and Evidence-Based Learning) Digital Ethics Task Force that was started in

2019 to look more closely into the topic and establish principles to guide learners, lecturers, and institutions in their journey online.
