Office of Lifelong and Lifewide Learning

Drexel University School of Education

The Office of Lifelong and Life-wide Learning (O3L) is the non-academic credit action arm of the Drexel School of Education dedicated to extending the school’s leadership role as a learning innovator with learners of all ages. While many learning opportunities are available through O3L without cost, the majority of those that result in a micro-credential have a fee attached. O3L Learning Resources are related to education and development for learners of all ages in all contexts, including School of Education alumni and current registered students.

Registrants may apply for micro-credentials, including badges, certificates, or continuing education units upon demonstrated competency in designated learning activities like courses and workshops. Coupled with courses for academic credit offerings of SoE, O3L products will enable the learner to create an “Education Passport” to the future.

As we evolve, O3L will feature recordings of scholarly and popular talks, as well as live and recorded instructional webinars, screencasts, podcasts, demonstrations, workshops, and trainings. O3L will also contain links to digitally printed articles, books, and handbooks. Curated lists of software tools relevant to education and learning are also included. Additionally, the O3L website includes listings of Professional Education Services (PES) offered by the School of Education faculty and its partners, including consulting for hire. As a compendium of resources and learning experiences, the purpose of O3L is to create transformative change in continuous learning throughout the lifespan.
