Webinar Descriptions

Considering Digital Ethics in Post-Pandemic Pedagogy and Curricula: The Case of ePortfolios

Webinar Leaders: 
Megan Mize, Kristina Hoeppner, Sarah Zurhellen, & Kevin Kelly

Date of Webinar: November 7, 2022


During the COVID-19 pandemic, higher education stakeholders scrambled to develop processes for effective online learning. Some of these processes drew on established practices; many did not. In this webinar, presenters will provide an active forum for faculty, staff, and administrators to reflect on digital practice enacted before, during, and after the pandemic. Facilitators will share ethically sound strategies for addressing digital teaching and learning practices, using our work with ePortfolios to offer several exemplary cases.

Participants will:

  • Consider what positionalities and factors influence how administrators, faculty, students, and other stakeholders
  • Define “digital ethics" and identify the results of the rapid shift to online and hybrid learning in their contexts
