Today’s learner needs a flexible, customized approach to earning a college degree. Many adult learners have a wealth of work experience, transfer credit, military training, or credit from other sources. Part of Purdue Global University, Open College provides access to free and low-cost open resources to support students with prior college-level learning during every step of their educational journey. This unconventional approach to education removes traditional barriers to college credit by placing learners in an open environment, which encourages independent and critical thinking.

This presentation discusses the Bachelor of Science in Professional Studies degree, ways to earn credit, prior learning assessment, and open educational resources. Special emphasis will be placed on open educational resources and building a community of learners.

The session will engage participants with an open discussion on use of OERs, gaining institutional buy-in for OERs, and a resource-share opportunity.
