Abstract [en]

Academic research on the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)/validation in Sweden has developed alongside the emergence of RPL as a policy area. Although activities that fit the description of RPL have long been present in Sweden, the introduction of validation as a concept has directed stronger policy attention to the phenomenon. As a consequence, researchers have placed the concept and its associated practices under scrutiny. This chapter focuses on validation in Sweden and on research undertaken since 2000. Six main themes or areas of research have emerged, which structure the piece: historical studies of RPL; research on recognition of vocational competence; RPL, immigration and gender; theories of assessment in RPL; RPL and governance; and comparative studies of RPL. Swedish academic RPL research has utilised various methodological approaches and theoretical perspectives. Qualitative approaches dominate thus far, but quantitative ideas have been introduced at a theoretical level, via discussions on reliability and validity. The theories and concepts that have been used to explore RPL focus on phenomena such as learning, governmentality, communication and gender. Theoretical selections relate to the disciplines that have been involved - educational research has been and is dominant, but researchers from human work science and from business administration have added new perspectives.
