This brief video focuses on Canada-wide efforts to ensure the quality of Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR) in the university setting.
The video includes interviews with some of the people involved in bringing together university representatives to discuss their concerns about PLAR and how to make sure that it is an academically reliable, rigorous process.
The video also includes an interview with a woman who explains how the credits she earned through PLAR helped her finish her university degree when she was tempted to quit.
The video, about three and a half minutes in length, was prepared by the Adult Learning Knowledge Centre (AdLKC).
