Conversations With CAEL: Jennifer Sparrow, Associate Dean of Academic Affairs for CUNY SPS

Posted by Marie Cini

Topics: Success Stories, Best Practices, Prior Learning Assessments (PLA), Partnerships, Adult Learning, Adult Learner 360, CAEL Members, online learning

Around the start of a new year, it’s common for people to reflect on change – maybe make a few predictions. A new decade? Even more so. The 2020s will be our sixth decade of advocating for working adult learners. Anyone who has shared that journey knows it’s challenged by constant upheaval. But I’d like to take the opportunity to focus on one constant amid all that change – and make one very confident prediction. From the beginning, CAEL’s greatest strength has been our membership. That will always be the case.

Posted by Marie Cini

Topics: Adult Student Success, Trends in Higher Education, Partnerships, CAEL News, CAEL Members

The postsecondary learning landscape is changing, and adult learners are starting to be recognized across the world of higher education. In recent media articles, we’ve seen evidence of both the change in learners and in the institutions serving them.

This week, Washington Monthly’s 2018 College Guide & Rankings included its third annual ranking of the institutions that serve adult learners. I’m proud of our collaboration with the magazine, which dates back to 2016, when the CAEL team joined forces with Washington Monthly to advise them on the metrics that might be used to identify America’s best colleges for adult learners.

When Education and Workforce Meet, Good things Happen

Posted by Brian Sorenson

Topics: Workforce Development, Partnerships, Employee Training

Lately, the topic of fostering partnerships between educators and the workforce to spur community revitalization has become a popular one with advocates for economic development.  Indeed, regional economic development continues to emphasize the importance of the availability of a skilled workforce as the number one priority and communities’ ability to develop skills as the key capability that will result in a healthy economy.  And while investing in elementary and secondary education is of course critical, communities cannot afford to ignore the adult workforce.  Even those who are currently employed will need to continue learning and developing skills in order to remain employed.
