We’re delighted to announce that Maker Ed — in collaboration with the Remake Learning Network — will be offering an east coast Open Portfolio Workshop in Pittsburgh on Nov 15-16, 2016! Graciously hosted by IDeaTe at Carnegie Mellon University, this two-day, hands-on workshop will focus on exploring practices for capturing making & learning through portfolios.
In February 2016, we offered a portfolio-focused workshop in Palo Alto, CA for the first time, and we received so much interest that we’re excited to be able to offer it again, this time with even more learning and experience drawn from our Open Portfolio Project work.
Participants must apply and be accepted to attend. Applications are open and due Friday, Sept 23, 2016. Notifications of acceptance and follow-up details will be sent out no later than October 5, 2016.
The workshop is free and is geared towards practitioners in both formal and informal environments. Administrators interested in learning more about portfolios and their value are also welcome.
