I’m sharing the work I’ve collected and done since becoming the Director of Prior Learning Assessment to provide you with a status update.
The Prior Learning Primer will give you definitions, examples, costs, and processes. The handout was created by the Education Advisory Board, of which Penn State is a member. https://www.eab.com/
The “University-wide PLA Recommendations” document [link below] provides you with the work of several task forces and sets those recommendations into the Middle States guidelines and Undergraduate Education strategic planning. I’d like to see what your priorities are around these recommendations.
The folders are labeled to let you know what you’ll find: our PLA data, what external groups have published, resources for faculty, what we’ve done internally, the presentations I’ve given alone and with others, and research I’ve done regarding PLA at other Big 10 and CIC institutions.
I welcome suggestions for additional resources you’d like me to provide.
