  • Meeting Type : Webinar

New research findings from the Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL) and WICHE suggest that policies and practices that support prior learning assessment (PLA) have the potential to create more efficient pathways for mobility and increase student success—especially for adults. CAEL and WICHE collaborated with administrators, staff, and students from more than 70 institutions to conduct original research on the impact of current PLA policies and practices on adult student outcomes. Join us to learn about our key findings and to discuss the role institution staff and policy makers can play in student success by helping shape and implement PLA policy and practice.
