Revolution for Re-Theorizing the Changing Perspectives of Prior Learning Assessment
There have been efforts in re-theorizing Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) to consider the changing perspectives of theories and practices, which Michelson (2012) insisted was not only necessary, but extremely past due. This presentation advances the theoretical and practical discussion of PLA in alternative modes and theories of education and learning. This is necessitated by the changes in critical theory since the inception of PLA in higher education and adult learning that according to Michelson “have undermined the clear distinction between theory and practice.”
