COIL is proud to have supported The Penn State Lifelong Learning Landscape (L3) project through our Research Initiation Grant Program.
The Penn State Lifelong Learning Landscape (L3) Project will build, implement, and study the effects of an innovative educational delivery system designed to meet the needs of non-degree learners; promote lifelong connections between Alumni and the University; and attract new learners to Penn State. Based on our initial success with the NASA/NSTA “Teacher Learning Journeys” partnership, the L3 system:
Content from any academic program or other PSU source can be accommodated and delivered by the system, and these can include activities designed for both professional and personal development. While no academic credit will be offered for L3 activities, academic programs could use PSU’s credit by examination or credit by portfolio policies to grant credit while recovering costs. Partners in the development and research include Continuing Education, Alumni Career Services, the Teaching and Learning Technologies Group, and the College of Education.
