Where does this lead us?
We will see more and more of these credits on transcripts, what will we do with them?
What are the advantages and disadvantages of creating consistent PLA/CBE policy & practice?
Do we need to be competitive?
If so, what would that look like -- same degrees, different ones, badges, certificates, etc.?
Joint, regional programs?
Modes of delivery? Online self-paced modules, portfolios (region-wide?), exams (same cut scores?)
Should this be a focus? How urgent is it?
And then there are MOOC's
but are they a major factor?
ACE Reccs.
