Across the country, U.S. higher education institutions are developing more effective postsecondary pathways for post-traditional learners. Prior learning assessment (PLA) and credit for prior learning are critical components of these strategies.
To help showcase some of these effective strategies, the American Council on Education (ACE) will host a free webinar: "Prior Learning Assessment: From Piecemeal to a Systems Approach" Nov, 14, 2013, 9:30-11:00 am EDT, that will show how three diverse higher education systems are building integrated policies and programs that advance quality PLA practices.
The webinar will showcase success stories from the University System of Georgia, Washington State's higher education institutions, and the University of Wisconsin System. Speakers will discuss the prior learning assessment strategy on his or her campus before engaging in conversation with ACE's Mary Beth Lakin. All speakers will answer questions from attendees throughout the webinar.
