e-Portfolio 2009 (7th international conference) Key Competencies-Skills for Life 2009 (3rd international conference) Learning Networks and Communities (4th international conference-previously Learning Regions & Cities)

London, UK, 22-24 June 2009

The main theme of this year’s is Innovation, Creativity and Accountability. It will be addressed over three days and three conferences:

  • How do we promote innovation and creativity? Why is accountability so often perceived as antonymic to innovation and is there a way to account for innovation and creativity? Does accountability necessarily lead to standardized tests, rigid procedures and impoverished practice? What new approaches to the recognition and celebration of achievement are being developed and implemented? Can technology provide a seamless environment between creative and innovative practice and accountability-for example ‘creative’ individual e-Portfolios and ‘accountable’ organisational e-Portfolios designed for quality assurance? How are learning networks and communities encouraging new approaches to the way we learn, work and live?
