Release of Empire State College Case Study on e-Literate TV

By Phil Hill

July 9, 2015

Today we are thrilled to release the fourth case study in our new e-Literate TV series on “personalized learning.” In this series, we examine how that term, which is heavily marketed but poorly defined, is implemented on the ground at a variety of colleges and universities.

We are adding two episodes from Empire State College (ESC), a school that was founded in 1971 as part of the State University of New York. Through a lot of one-on-one, student-faculty interactions, the school was designed to serve the needs of students who don’t do well at traditional colleges. What problems are they trying to solve? How do students view some of the changes? What role does the practice of granting prior-learning assessments (PLA) play in non-traditional students’ education?

You can see all the case studies (either 2 or 3 per case study) at the series link, and you can access individual episodes below.
