With more than two decades of experience in postsecondary education policy and practice, Louis Soares, Chief Learning and Innovation Officer for the American Council on Education (ACE),  is a true innovator and thought leader on emerging trends in higher education.

He has also published a number of important papers while at ACE, including The Post-traditional Learners Manifesto Revisited: Aligning Postsecondary Education with Real Life for Adult Student Success and Evolving Higher Education Business Models: Leading with Data to Deliver Results.

In this episode of the Leading Learning Podcast, Jeff talks with Louis about his perspective on the emerging lifelong learning landscape and the concept of credit for prior learning, an ACE initiative which awards credit for college-level knowledge and skills acquired outside of the classroom. They also discuss how ACE is meeting the evolving needs of its members, particularly through their thoughtfully designed peer-to-peer learning platform, ACE Engage.

With the launch of a new event recently behind us, we wanted to devote some time to reflect on the experience. And, as we have done with past Leading Learning events, we are utilizing the After Action Review (AAR) as a framework to guide that reflection process.

For those that might not be aware, the new event - Live Review 2019 - was a two-day, entirely online offering that allowed participants a chance to get targeted demos from 14 learning platforms focused on learning businesses and committed to serving organizations that market and sell lifelong learning, continuing education, and professional development.

In this episode of the Leading Learning Podcast, Jeff and Celisa reflect on Live Review using the guiding components of AAR: what it is they set out to do, what actually happened, why there was a difference between the two (if there was one), and what they will continue and/or change going forward.
