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.
