Castle, Jane; Attwood, Gillian
Studies in the Education of Adults, v33 n1 p60-72 Apr 2001
The debate over whether recognition of prior learning (RPL) should focus on access or credit involves four issues: (1) challenges posed by the higher education environment; (2) the narrow instrumental view of curricula associated with RPL for credit; (3) the limitations of portfolios; and (4) relationship and status of different forms of knowledge.
