AU offers expertise in prior-learning assessment to University of Indonesia
Athabasca University and the Centre for Learning Accreditation (CLA) recently welcomed delegates from the University of Indonesia to learn more about our Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR) process.
Their team is tasked with building PLAR processes at the University of Indonesia and wanted to understand more about how Athabasca University delivers this important service to students.
What is PLAR?
Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR) is a process designed to award you credit towards your degree or certificate at Athabasca University and to open other doors to advancement. Different from transfer credit, PLAR is based on a tested process and set of mechanisms for the recognition of learning that you have acquired from life experience, job training, workshops, seminars, or other experience.
AU will award up to 60 credits to learners who are successful in completing a portfolio demonstrating that they have the appropriate prior and experiential learning to learn university-level credit.
