HACU webinar to address prior learning assessment in degree completion
The Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) will offer a free webinar on prior learning assessment (PLA) and how it can help close the gap in degree completion, particularly for adults with college level learning from life and work experience, on Thursday, Sept. 8 at 2 p.m. CT.
Information from "Random Access: The Latino Experience with Prior Learning Assessment," which includes an analysis of more than 32,000 student academic records, will be shared. Recommendations on how institutions can utilize PLA for minority students will follow, including representatives from a Hispanic-serving institution detailing experiences with PLA.
The webinar is a joint effort with the Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL).
