Prior Learning Assessment Theory and Practice: Exploring Critical Concerns & Practical Applications
This preconference workshop is designed for participants who are new or more experienced PLA practitioners. The workshop will focus on “best PLA practices” and on gaining new knowledge and insights that can strengthen PLA institutional activities.
This day-long workshop will provide participants with an overview of the critical themes and concerns of the PLA practitioner, including standards and procedures of assessing learning. It will also include working with an evaluation rubric and sample student narratives. All along, the workshop will offer opportunities to think together about starting and sustaining a PLA program.
Throughout the day, ample time will be provided for participants to ask questions, to raise problems, and to share their program models, their experiences, and their PLA concerns.
The workshop will be held on Tuesday, June 18 from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. at REVEL in Atlantic City. Registration must be made in advance (when registering for the National Institute) as space is limited and registrations will be accepted on a first-come first-served basis.
