Call for Contributions: A Special Issue of PLAIO


In this special issue of PLAIO, we invite contributions from papers and presentations connected to the 4th VPL Biennale (19-20 May 2022). This special issue will include essays/materials exploring the four major themes of the conference:

*Validation and the working life;

*Validation and education/training;

*Validation and social sustainability; and

*Validation and personal development.

We are especially interested in contributions that explore the history of VPL(RPL/PLA); that critically examine VPL assessment tools; that take up VPL in the academy, the workplace and in the community; that help us understand the links between VPL, access and social justice; and that propose approaches/innovations that advance VPL policies and practices worldwide.

Call for Materials for Prior Learning Assessment Inside Out (PLAIO) #9


PLA as an Avenue for New Recognitions and New Beginnings

In our next issue of PLAIO, we are calling for materials of all kinds: resources that have been created; policies that have been put in place; research that has been done; voices from researchers and those affected by existing policies; organizations and programs that have been established – efforts of all kinds that use PLA to recognize the skills, knowledge, competencies, and/or credentials of those who have been politically, economically, and culturally displaced. How has PLA become a practice that responds to these pressing social realities anywhere in the world?
