Hack of the Week: “Crediting” Students’ Informal Learning

Home / Blog / Hack of the Week: “Crediting” Students’ Informal Learning

This week’s Hack is from the Pathways team at the University of South Florida. USF is launching a series of “pop-up classes” – short-duration learning opportunities (see here for Stanford’s d.school pop-ups for inspiration). Students still want some documentation of their¬†experience, and USF came up with an ingenious way to do that – creating a “zero-credit” course for each pop-up so that they will show up on students’ official transcripts. Email team leader Sanjukta Bhanja to learn more.
