Credit for Prior Learning Hands-On Workshop
September 23, 2014

Join Rochester Community and Technical College Faculty to start the process of developing a prior learning portfolio. Additional resources will be shared for those with further interest in pursuing this exciting opportunity.

What type of students should come to the workshop?

  • Current or future students with a lot of expertise in one area for which they would like to get some credits.
  • Current or future students who have had a major life-changing event, such as having or adopting a child, doing foster care, recovering from a major illness, being a veteran or veteran family member, taking care of an aging parent, recovering from addiction, etc.
  • Current or future students who are specifically focused on justifying their prior learning for one or two specific courses and want to make that justification as good as possible.
  • Current or future students with a lot of varied experiences who just want to engage in the process and see what happens.

What should students bring to the workshop?

  • Resume
  • List of prior learning experiences.
  • List of learning artifacts. These are things that prove you have learned outside the classroom, such as certificates, blueprints, musical programs with your name listed, workplace training programs, etc.
  • Education goals.
  • The session will be most helpful for adults with five or more years of work experience, although everyone is welcome!
