Experiential Learning Around the World demonstrates that, with increased economic globalization, the way societies value non-traditional learning is changing. The assessment of adult and experiential learning (known as APEL) is bringing about significant shifts in post-secondary educational institutions which are becoming more responsive to the employment, social and domestic circumstances of individuals.
This comprehensive study explores the chronological and geographical expansion of APEL around the world. The authors describe and compare initiatives in their own countries, and their effectiveness at the levels of government, educational institutions, and employment. They highlight APEL's essential role in the adaptation of higher education to the competitive global market.
