Moving Into the Future with Credit for Prior Learning: Two Collaborative Workshop Opportunities

As MnSCU moves into the future, credit for prior learning (CPL) will become more important for our system to remain competitive and for our institutions to validate authentic student learning experiences. To prepare for these changes, the Southeast Consortium of MnSCU institutions, including Rochester Community & Technical College, Winona State University, Minnesota State College–Southeast Technical and Riverland Community College, are pleased to offer the following collaborative workshops focused on increasing student access to CPL.

Workshop One

Credit for Prior Learning: Opportunities for Discussion and Moving Forward

This collaborative workshop will provide a forum for discussion to develop plans for credit for prior learning (CPL) at your institution/s. Topics include: Top ten reasons why CPL is so important; current CPL national/local research and practices; MNSCU policies/procedures and support; your institution and CPL; collaborative approaches to CPL—who and why; institutional and/or collaborative action plan.

Workshop Two

Credit for Prior Learning: How to Do It

This workshop, geared toward faculty, focuses on doing credit for prior learning at the course level.
