Interstate Passport Webinar
Author: Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education
The Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) and the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE) co-presented a webinar about the “Interstate Passport Initiative: Focusing on Learning Outcomes to Streamline Transfer Pathways to Graduation” project on April 30, 2014.
The Interstate Passport Initiative is a WICHE project that has incorporated materials and principles from AAC&U’s Liberal Education and America’s Promise (LEAP) initiative. It has designed pilot transfer agreements among institutions in five Western states, using the written and oral communication and quantitative reasoning LEAP Essential Learning Outcomes. This webinar provided an informational overview of the project. Special attention was given to the research undergirding the project’s design, strategies used to engage faculty, and the operational “nuts and bolts” that will make the Passport functional on campuses.
