MetadataShow full item record
The recognition of prior learning (RPL) is a cornerstone of the lifelong learningpolicies of most developed nations. Yet the scholarly view in Australia has beenthat, unlike other post-compulsory education sectors, universities have erectedbarriers to limit the development of RPL. This paper re-examines the currentpolicy environment and finds evidence that universities are now more active indeveloping and promoting RPL, as evidenced by the rich detail of informationcontained in recent policies, as well as the accessibility of this information onthe web. Recognition of prior learning policies are examined in detail to shedlight further on the state of play of RPL in the Australian higher educationsector.
