Session Description: Continuing Education departments can be the "front line" for new program development. CE provides strengths that are required for success: responsiveness; leveraging of resources; and sustainability. In a time when college resources are threatened, collaborations between CE and credit are one way to weather the storm. This webinar offers suggestions for ways CE and credit departments can partner, and provides examples of successful collaborations at several different community colleges. This webinar is based on the NCCET white paper "Continuing Education as ‘Incubator’ of New College Credit Programs” and was presented during the NCCET/NCWE Conference in October of 2011.
