Get credit for life skills
Danielson - posted Nov, 30 2012
DANIELSON — Quinebaug Valley Community College will provide an opportunity for students to explore the possibility of receiving college credit for knowledge and skills acquired through direct life/work experiences by offering a Credit for Prior Learning Workshop on Thursday, Dec. 13, at 6:30 p.m. at the Danielson campus. Students in the Credit for Prior Learning Portfolio Preparation course learn how to analyze, organize, assess, and articulate their knowledge and skills and to relate that learning to specific college-level curricula. Each student develops a portfolio that is submitted to an assessment committee for possible award of college credits. Students wishing to register for this course must attend a Credit for Prior Learning Workshop, and it is also an opportunity for interested students to see if this is a good option for them. The workshop is free and registration is not required. The Credit for Prior Learning Portfolio Preparation course will be offered in the spring 2013 semester in Danielson on Thursdays evenings.
