Title:
Repurposing MOOCs for the Accreditation of Prior Learning: A survey of practice in university Work Based Learning departments
Authors:
Talbot, Jon
Abstract:
The presentation summarises a small survey of APL practices in work based learning departments in universities in England and Wales in respect of willingness to accept completion of a MOOC learning programme. The study found few students with MOOC certificates approached universities for accreditation and that few were likely to accept them in any case. The study highlights how many students are now engaged in work based learning and the varieties of practice associated with the Accreditation/ Recognition of Prior Learning.
