This book offers a theoretical framework for understanding Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) "not simply as an assessment practice, but as a specialised pedagogy for navigating knowledge boundaries across different contexts." from the back cover

"The title 'RPL as Specialised Pedagogy' boldly states its unique contribution to the theory and practice of the Recognition of Prior Learning. By shifting the focus away from assessment, this work opens up a relatively under researched aspect of RPL. By using a common theoretical framework to investigate RPL in a range of contexts (higher education, workplace, and worker education), it represents a great leap forward in RPL research. Employing Cultural Historical Activity theory to interpret and unify findings from these diverse settings moves RPL research into the theoretical mainstream of current research in the broader field of workplace an adult learning."
