3 Geographical boundaries Theoretical orientations


5  To encourage new RPL practices to build on the existing research base rather than reinvent the wheel  As RPL practices develop and change around the world, there is a need to keep sight of research that has taken place over the last few decades, as well as to capture new research and new scholarly activity

6 RESEARCH: systematic empirical research and non-empirical scholarly literature PRACTICE: research, policy and actual practice

7 Practice Research


9  Overview chapters (2)  Policy-oriented chapters (2)  Issues-based chapters (7)  Context-based chapters (4)
