Fields of Study
This course is designed to help prepare Prior Learning from Experience (PLE) students to write documents that provide evidence of college-level learning from life experience.  We will explore various techniques for deriving, clarifying, and expressing meaning from life experience. Students will identify specific knowledge they have gained and will explore various writing techniques available for self-expression.  There are also openings in this course for another set of students who will engage in the same readings and preparatory work about effective writing but will engage in creative writing workshops while the PLE students concentrate on learning how to create their PLE documents.  Though both groups will follow different writing tracks, we will all share time together supporting and enjoying one another’s work.  All students should be prepared to work collaboratively in small groups to discuss ideas and give feedback on each other's writing.
