Webinar: The Power of PLA Today: Recognition of Prior Learning for Access, Equity, Learning & More

May 19, 2020 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm
PLAIO SUNY Empire State College

The wider acceptance of the evaluation of prior learning has marked a significant breakthrough in higher education and in workforce development and training. More and more institutions of many types now acknowledge learners have knowledge, skills and insights gained outside of the academy or outside of formal training centers. This means that many learners now have access, status and recognition that they had previously been denied. PLA has gained a great deal of “power”!!

Whether you are new to the field or have been a PLA practitioner for many years, please join us for this Webinar on Tuesday, May 19 from 11:00 am – 12:00 pm EST to learn more about our PLA values, commitments, and our goals, and to engage in a discussion about PLA’s impact around the world.

All are welcome, and registration is not necessary for the webinar.

Our guests will be:

Amber Garrison Duncan, Strategy Director of the Lumina Foundation (USA)

Heidi Bolton, Director of Research at the South Africa Qualification Authority (SA)

Anni Karttunen, senior specialist in Education Policy (Finland)

Facilitated by: Nan Travers and Alan Mandell, Co-Editors PLAIO  SUNY Empire State College
