Trends in Prior Learning Assessment Panel

Speakers: Nan Travers, Ashley Frank, and Alyssa Vine
Description: Over the past few years, CUNY and SUNY have engaged in efforts to improve credit and noncredit alignment through Prior Learning Assessment (PLA), with the belief that if an individual begins their time at college on the noncredit side and then decides to move into a degree plan on the credit side, the work completed on the noncredit side should be recognized. This panel will focus on the following: 1) Case making: the why we engage in PLA, the philosophy and the policy; 2) Trust: with colleagues, with faculty and with students; 3) Quality: how we ensure quality and integrate that into our PLA policy; 4) Consistency: learning outcomes are the same across non-credit and credit; 5) Equity: how do we use PLA to ensure that all people have equal opportunities in higher education; and 6) Recognition: credentials, credits, etc. Panelists will discuss PLA trends from national projects, CUNY and SUNY systems and will offer insights about the future of Prior Learning Assessment. With the recent addition of non-credit TAP funding, this transition from non-credit to credit becomes even more important. We will hear from NYS experts in this field and you will have a chance to ask questions
