Pre-Conference Workshop
Prior Learning Assessment Theory and Practice: Exploring Critical Concerns
and Practical Applications

The Pre-Conference Workshop is designed for participants who are PLA practitioners at all levels. The Workshop will focus on "best PLA practices" and on gaining new knowledge and insights that can strengthen PLA institutional activities.

This full day workshop will provide participants with an overview of the critical themes and concerns of the PLA practitioner, including standards and procedures of assessing learning. It will also include working with an evaluation rubric and sample student narratives. All along, the Workshop will offer opportunities to think together about starting and sustaining a PLA program.

Throughout the day, ample time will be provided for participants to ask questions, to raise issues and to share their program models, their experiences and PLA concerns.

The day will be mediated by Alan Mandell, SUNY, Empire State College and Theresa Hoffman,
PLA Consulting.
