Ashley and Mike recently attended the 2015 Association for Authentic Experiential Evidence Based Learning (AAEEBL) conference and had the opportunity to kick off the conference by giving 2 consecutive Ignite Talks. AAEEBL's goal is "to promote portfolio learning as a major way to transform higher education." The Ignite Model invites presenters to "share their personal and professional passions, using 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds for a total of just five minutes." The following are their reflections on the Ignite experience and the AAEEBL conference overall.
