what method of further education is right for you?

These days, there are even more options when it comes to furthering your education. Do you attend a community college, a university or do you complete an online virtual college course? What method of furthering your education will be most suited for you? I created this blog as I worked with my daughter to find the best way for her to obtain the degree that she wanted. We searched, interviewed and dug into all of the different methods of further education and have included it right here for you. Hopefully, the days and weeks that we spent researching will help you as much as it helped my daughter.

    The Role Of Prior Learning Assessment In Adult Education

    When adults go back to college after several years in the workplace, they carry with them valuable information learned on the job. This hands-on training can actually substitute for college credit via a process that many adult learning programs offer, called prior learning assessment.  Most adult education programs have a process for assessing prior learning that includes faculty evaluation of a portfolio prepared by the student. According to the Council on Adult Experiential Learning (CAEL), more than 66 percent of institutions have some form of portfolio evaluation that results in additional college credit for on-the-job learning.
