To encourage new RPL practices to build
on the existing research base rather than
reinvent the wheel
 As RPL practices develop and change
around the world, there is a need to
keep sight of research that has taken
place over the last few decades, as well
as to capture new research and new
scholarly activity

• RESEARCH: systematic empirical
research and non-empirical
scholarly literature
• PRACTICE: research, policy and
actual practice

Compendium of research and scholarly literature,
organised thematically, in one text
Extension of that literature in terms of its implications
for ‘practice’
Resource for academic researchers, postgraduate
students, policymakers and practitioners interested in
researching and developing RPL
Resource for practitioner training
Huge reference lists: references, abstracts and some
full-texts will be entered into the PLIRC database
A useful and timely resources as RPL continues to
develop around the world
There will be no social and economic
‘promise’ unless we heed lessons from the
past
 Research and practice need to work
together to address this ‘promise’ – and as
a ‘prerequisite’ for ‘systematic knowledge
production’
 ‘The professional development of RPL
requires both experiential learning and
research-based learning and knowledge’
 Encourage research and researchers!!!
