MPLAN was very pleased to welcome and host a reception for a Danish PLAR Study Tour on April 10, 2013. Led by Joy Van Kleef, CEO, Canadian Institute for Recognizing Learning (CIRL), the Study Tour included 7 members from Denmark’s University College North (UCN). We were also pleased to welcome David Adler from South Africa and Dianne Conrad, Director for the Centre for Learning Accreditation at Athabasca University, Alberta. During the one week study tour, the Danish team visited Montreal and Winnipeg to learn about PLAR/RPL in Canada.
The MPLAN reception provided the opportunity for members to network, share information on RPL in Manitoba and learn about PLAR in Denmark. To open the event, Mavis Lewis Webber, MPLAN Chair provided an overview presentation on MPLAN. Ulla Oddershede, lead member of the Danish team shared a very interesting presentation on PLAR in Denmark. After the presentations, members and guests networked and enjoyed some light refreshments.
