What if there was a way for your mature students and clients to receive university credit for what they learned through work and life? How could receiving post-secondary credit for this learning impact their formal education? Their career development post-COVID (in the midst of the 4th industrial revolution)? This session answers these questions through exploring the PLAR (prior learning assessment and recognition) program at Thompson Rivers University.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Learn how PLAR impacts completion rates, gpa, and career development.
  • Challenge the mindset "learning can ONLY be done in PSI".
  • Learn rigorous assessment methods for assessing informal and non-formal education.
