Are you interested in knowing more about RPL?
This free MOOC is for you!
The ITCILO and ILO’s Employment Department, Skills and Employability Branch join forces to organize the first edition of this free Massive Open Online Course (MOOC).
Recognition of prior learning (RPL) is a process of identifying, documenting, assessing and certifying formal, non-formal and informal learning outcomes against standards used in formal education and training.
This MOOC is part of the ILO’s efforts in supporting countries to develop and implement RPL systems. It unfolds over seven weeks, during which participants will gain an in-depth understanding of RPL including the basic definitions, underpinning theories, typical processes, assessment design, and emerging trends in digitalisation. Apart from presenting a wide range of existing and emerging RPL practices from around the world, the MOOC also features online webinars, forum discussions with international experts, peer-to-peer learning and knowledge-sharing among participants from different countries.
The MOOC is, in fact, two courses in one:
• RPL Essentials course (weeks 1 – 3), which is designed for those people who are new to RPL AND need a quick overview of the key features, processes and practices of RPL.
• RPL Development course (weeks 1 – 7), which is designed for those who need deeper insight into the underpinning theory of RPL, the systemic enablers, assessment tool design, e-RPL and advocacy.
