CHICAGO--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Huron Consulting Group, a leading provider of business consulting services, today announced a new Huron Education podcast entitled, “The University of Wisconsin Flexible Option - A New Degree Path for Underserved Adult Learners.”
“The University of Wisconsin Flexible Option - A New Degree Path for Underserved Adult Learners.”
The University of Wisconsin recently created the Flexible Option, a new academic program that awards credit to students who can demonstrate competency in specific skills and courses. In this podcast, Aaron Brower, who helped create the program at the University of Wisconsin, sat down with Edwin Eisendrath, managing director of Huron Education, to talk about the program, why the university started it, which students are likely to gain from it, and why. Despite appearances, the flexible option is not necessarily easier than other academic programs.
|This podcast features Aaron Brower, interim provost and vice chancellor for the University of Wisconsin Extension, and Edwin Eisendrath, managing director of Huron Education.|
