By the time most adults are in their 30’s, they have probably spent a good amount of time actively engaged in interpersonal communications. This could include:
- Personal interactions with teachers, clergy, family members
- Negotiating with real estate brokers, auto dealers and service technicians, insurance agents and customer service reps
- Participating in decision-making with co-workers, colleagues or members of community has made them adept communicators
So, does experiencing these interactions mean that most adult students should be awarded prior learning assessment (PLA) credit for the University’s General Education course, Interpersonal Communications (COM-330)?
Quite honestly, no.
