QAA are holding a one-day conference for their Flexible Curriculum project on 29th April 2014 in Glasgow. This event will examine the concept of flexible learner journeys into and through higher education by introducing two new initiatives developed by QAA Scotland and the higher education sector.
These projects are the Higher Education National Framework for Recognising Prior Learning (RPL) and the Flexible Curricula Toolkit which is part of the Developing and Supporting the Curriculum Enhancement Theme.
The day will include a practical session around the framework and toolkit, a panel session to consider next steps and key issues, and a keynote speech from Professor Gordon Suddaby from Massey University in New Zealand.
Professor Suddaby is a past president of the Australian Council on Open, Distance and e-Learning and is currently involved with the NATA project (Network of Australasian Tertiary Associations) which aims to build a sustainable and collaborative network of practice between Australasian higher education organisations.
