CEO for Cities News

Webinar: Engaging the adult population, April 5

CEOs for Cities continues a six-part webinar series entitled "Strategies for City Success," designed specifically to meet the needs of cities participating in the Talent Dividend Network and Talent Dividend Prize Competition. 
The series began in December and will continue on the first Friday of each month through May 2013. Each webinar begins at 2:30 pm EST. 

The next webinar, Engaging the Adult Population by Offering New Ways to Earn College Credit, will provide an overview of Prior Learning Assessment. Prior Learning Assessment is a process by which adults can obtain college level credit for learning that's taken place outside of the college classroom, i.e. work or life experiences.

PLA has many forms that range from standardized testing to individual learning portfolios. CAEL has been a leader in PLA policy development, defining institutional rigor, and providing an independent platform for potential college students to submit learning portfolios for college level credit (

This session will showcase the Tennessee Higher Education Commission, which is working with CAEL to promote PLA to employers across the state as they pursue the Talent Dividend prize, focusing on the importance of PLA in helping adults to amass credits for what they already know, and advancing them towards completion faster and more effectively.
