Balancing Prior Learning With New Learning

Congratulations to Jodie Johnson, an Interdisciplinary Studies major with concentrations in Religious Studies and Human Studies, who recently completed her Prior Learning Assessment Portfolio. Jodie earned 33 credits based on knowledge she gained through both her professional and personal experiences! She wrote nine PLA essays on the following topics:

  • Interpersonal Communication
  • Business Ethics
  • Real Estate Practices
  • Solving Communication Problems with Technology
  • Listening
  • Customer Relations
  • Sales
  • Persuasion, Argumentation, Debate
  • Computer Concepts

In Jodie’s Final Reflection Statement she wrote:

After writing seven essays and against the recommendation of my instructors, I decided to take a term off from PLA. I was so excited to delve into my core classes and obtain new learning. Ultimately it did not do me any favors when I went to finish up the last two essays…My eighth essay was an incredible struggle…I had to relearn the structure of Prior Learning…I should have kept on the motivated wave of writing and finished. It is the greatest lesson I can pass along to all those interested in moving ahead in their college career with PLA.
