Description

The Institute for Learning and Teaching in Higher Education (ILT) was launched in 1999 as a result of the recommendations of the Dearing committee. It is the only national body in the world which promotes the quality of teaching and learning in higher education. This book has four purposes: * to provide the background story to the evolution and establishment of the ILT * to document the central role of the assessment of prior learning (APL) * to support the institutions and individuals who are moving to engage with the ILT and in particular take the APL route for the first time * to speculate on the possible consequences of the ILT itself and APL within it. The ILT is a professional membership organisation which is open to all institutions and academics. This book will be of interest to all those who teach and support learning in higher education.
