WHERE TO START - ADULT LEARNING FOCUSED INSTITUTION
See how well your institution is helping adults succeed through the Adult Learning Focused Institution (ALFI) survey instruments. The results help you see patterns, set priorities and decide which interventions will have the greatest effect on your adult student goals.
BUILD A MOVEMENT
Connect with others who have a passion for adult learning by joining CAEL and attending CAEL’s array of online and in-person events. Make a stance for adult students at your institution and beyond.
LIFE AND CAREER PLANNING
Our programs teach your advisors to tune into the needs of adults and translate the array of career options into meaningful learning plans. CAEL advisors can also provide career advising directly to students.
PRIOR LEARNING ASSESSMENT
The easiest way to scale up PLA is through our online portfolio assessment service, LearningCounts. We handle the assessments and provide marketing resources and advisor training.
If you are handling PLA at your institution, we help you decode and discover obstacles in your PLA policies, create a plan for training faculty and advisors, launch outreach and marketing campaigns and simplify process flows and pricing structures for PLA to encourage use.
Our suite of CBE services help your faculty and staff discover and explore the best way for your institution to thrive by using this innovative model. We can evaluate your readiness, train faculty and help you with assessment protocols and assessment design.
PARTNERSHIPS WITH EMPLOYERS
We connect you to forward-thinking employers, ensuring effective communication that keeps them engaged as needs evolve. We also link you with other stakeholders, including workforce and economic developers, and transform your institution into a hub for lifelong learning in your community.
