PRE-CON.A.03 - Best Practices in Pathways and Credit Transfer

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In this interactive workshop, we will begin by presenting the Best Practices document recently introduced at Fanshawe College to facilitate pathway and credit transfer activities. The document has been vetted by stakeholders both internal and external to Fanshawe and is based on a literature review regarding the principles guiding pathways and credit transfer provincially, nationally, and internationally. It responds to the Ontario Ministerial appeal that post-secondary students not be required to repeat “prior, relevant learning” (MTCU, 2011). Following our presentation, we will facilitate a discussion with workshop participants regarding the policies and procedures governing pathways and credit transfer at their institutions. Finally, we will lead participants through a modified Team-Based Learning exercise, providing an opportunity for participants to apply the Best Practices to a case study. This exercise will simulate how the Best Practices are interpreted and operationalized by stakeholders with varying levels of familiarity with pathways and credit transfer.

Following this session, participants will be able to:

  1. Discuss best practices in pathways and credit transfer.

  2. Identify the provincial bodies supporting pathway and credit transfer activity throughout Canada.

  3. Describe the practices and processes surrounding pathways and credit transfer at other institutions, including how those activities are measured.

  4. Apply the principles of the Best Practices to a pathways and credit transfer case study.

  5. Recognize opportunities for applying the Best Practices to pathways and credit transfer within their own institutions.
