Christensen, Frank A.
This report presents guidelines developed by a task force at William Rainey Harper College (Illinois) for translating experiential learning into academic credit. Introductory sections describe the institutional commitment to granting credit for non-traditional learning experiences, a new related Associate in Liberal Studies degree, the current national interest in the open college concept, and the makeup and methodology of the task force. The body of the report, presented as an Appendix, contains the documents generated by the study, including: (1) a statement of philosophy and rationale; (2) separate sets of instructions to faculty and students describing their respective roles in the crediting process; (3) delineation of the stepwise procedures to be followed by students seeking credit for experiential learning; (4) suggested format for the student-generated portfolios; and (5) guidelines for the documenting of such learning experiences as military service, licensing, hobbies, employment, etc. (LO)
