EUROPORTFOLIO, the network of European ePortfolio experts and practitioners, was present with a workshop at the EADTU conference in Hagen, Germany on October 30, 2015 (9 a.m.-11 a.m.).

This workshop, entitled “Bridging the Gaps and Joining the Dots”, focused on EUROPORTFOLIO’s ePortfolio & Open Badges Maturity Framework and OERs and MOOCs on ePortfolios.
