Montgomery College to Hold Seminars for Students to Earn Credits for Work and Real Life Experience Assessment of Prior Learning Seminars are scheduled for Nov. 7 and Dec. 5
Montgomery College is hosting seminars designed to guide students’ expectations, requirements and benefits to completing alternative credit-bearing options at Montgomery College. These alternative options include credit for work experience, credit by examination and the College Level Examination Program, or CLEP. At the seminars, students are invited to share their workplace experiences, training and life-learning skills and professional goals.
The first seminar is Monday, November 7, 2011 from 6 – 7 p.m. in the High Technology and Science Center, Room 216 on the Germantown Campus. The next is Monday, December 5, from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. in the Humanities Building, Room 116 on the Rockville Campus. It is recommended that they spend time analyzing their knowledge, skills and abilities and relate them to the courses that are taught at Montgomery College to best determine the learning that has taken place and relate this to the chosen courses they plan to take.
The Assessment of Prior Learning program at Montgomery College was developed in response to a growing need to recognize the significant learning acquired by adults outside the college classroom. That learning might have occurred as a result of work experiences, on-the-job training, military training, apprenticeship training, continuing education courses, community activities, or self-designed learning activities that resulted in the acquisition of skills or knowledge. The students will have their learning evaluated for possible credit awards.
