  • Student Credit Mobility: Key Topics in Research and Practice

    Emily Tichenor, Program Manager for Articulation of Credit Transfer Project, ITHAKA S+R

    Modern students are increasingly mobile and acquire validated learning and college credits from more sources, and over longer periods of time, than ever before. But far too often processes, policies, inaccurate or invisible information, and poor inter-institutional collaboration block students from applying their past learning to college degrees. Institutions, state systems, and organizations across the country are working to better understand and overcome these challenges and boost degree completion. During this session we will review a selection of recent innovations and key learnings from the field and how they can inform local initiatives and projects.
