Prior Learning Assessment Electronic Portfolio

E-PortfolioPrior Learning Assessment Electronic Portfolio

With funding from the Ohio Learning Network, our Learning Community became a reality -- once an idea in the minds of two members, we began to invite others who indicated mutual interest.  We explored the world of prior learning assessment, electronic portfolio, emotional intelligence and more.  Our goals:  meet needs of students and employers for clear documentation of acquired knowledge and skills; develop a model course (including a template for syllabi); and develop products and protocols, (based on the concept of emotional intelligence) that will enable students to proactively prepare to best use their learning, abilities and attributes in their personal and professional lives.

We invite you to visit our world.
