Dagavarian, Debra A., Ed.
This publication highlights three topics from the 1992 National Institute on the Assessment of Experiential Learning. "Computer Conferencing at the National Institute: The Articulation of Knowledge and Writing Ability in the Assessment of Experiential Learning" (Evelyn F. Spradley) discusses the electronic conference held concurrently with the institute. The edited text of the conference focuses on the student's role in the definition of experiential learning. "How Adults Learn" (Barbara Waters Eklund) is a report of a session given by Elizabeth Kasl that introduced members of the advanced track to adult learning theory and later gave them an opportunity for role playing. This part contains a nine-item bibliography and the role-playing exercise used in the session. "Searching for an Identity: The Role of the Prior Learning Assessment Professional" (Barbara Waters Eklund) summarizes the session by Alan Mandell that raised questions as to the personal and institutional role of the individual in an institution charged with the responsibility of administering prior learning assessment.
