Rewarding Military Experience: Prior Learning Assessment and the Military Learner

Presenter(s): 

Joshua Carcopa, Associate Director of Evaluations and Student Records, Grantham University

Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) is a great example of the old adage, what's old is new again. All across the country, colleges and universities are reinventing their Prior Learning Assessment programs as they aim to better serve the adult learner and increase graduation rates by awarding college credit for experiential learning. This presentation will demonstrate the value of PLA, its reception in academia, and how successful PLA programs allow colleges and universities to capture and reward the learning experiences of our military men and women.
