Academic Impressions Webcast: Offering Credit for Prior Learning Assessment

Many institutions have adopted prior learning assessment (PLA) as a way to retain and graduate more students. Through PLA, students gain college-level credit for knowledge and skills learned from nontraditional sources such as work and life experiences. The challenge for institutions is assessing students’ mastery of a subject and determining how to award credit on a consistent basis.

Join us to learn how your institutions can offer credit for prior learning assessment. During this online training we’ll address the following:

  • Sources of prior learning assessment
  • Faculty perception, awareness, and resistance
  • PLA credit review and approval process
  • Balancing PLA credit toward elective vs. major requirements
