This course builds upon the knowledge and reflection acquired in PLA-100, Introduction to Prior Learning Assessment. This course will help students identify courses and subject areas that best match their selected college-level knowledge base. Students will plan each segment of their portfolio and will use course objectives to create a detailed outline. This outline will delineate topics for development based upon the knowledge, theoretical understanding, and applied learning retrieved from work, community, and personal experiences. As a result of this course, students will be prepared to complete their written portfolio.
Advisory: All students who are interested in pursuing portfolio development and prior learning assessment will need to take this course, unless they have already successfully completed a PLA course. Your success in this course will depend partly on how well you express yourself. Therefore, you are strongly advised to have taken ENC-101 and ENC-102 (or their equivalents) before taking this orientation to prior learning assessment.
