ACE Attainment and Innovation Webinars Provide Information for Wide Range of Higher Education Professionals

April 19, 2017

 

An April 26 webinar presented by ACE’s College and University Partnerships, The CPL-CBE Connection, will feature a discussion of how credit for prior learning (CPL) and competency-based education (CBE) programs and policies have been integrated at different institutions. There is still time to register for the 90-minute presentation, designed for institutional administrators, chairs, deans, faculty, advisors and program coordinators.

Now archived online is a March 30 webinar, the JST (Joint Services Transcript) Stakeholders Forum, that provided updates about how to use the JST program to provide service members and veterans with the best military transcript.

These are just two of many webinars offered by ACE’s Center for Education Attainment and Innovation (CEAI) that provide information and professional development resources for college and university academic and student services leadership teams in areas such as military and workplace credit recommendations.
