Validation of Non-formal Adult Education Courses: A New Validation Function for Higher Education Institutes in Europe.
Validation and Recognition of Experiential Learning.
REACTION – Recognition and Accreditation of Experiential Learning – a Way for Better Accessibility of Adult Education.
One of the outputs from the REACTION project was the development of a model for the validation of nonformal
adult education courses. HEIs and universities across Europe, have traditionally been concerned
with the validation of formal education programmes only, thus the model proposed by the partners challenges
them to employ a new validation function for non-formal courses. This paper argues that this new
function will pose many challenges for the HEIs but it further argues that if the model is implemented,
there are numerous benefits to be had for individuals and for HEIs.
