The refereed e-journal, the International Review of Research in Open and Distance Learning (IRRODL), has published the first of three special issues on theory and practice in open and distance learning worldwide.
Entitled, 'Prior, Experiential and Informal Learning in the Age of Information and Communication Technologies', the first of this series of special issues focuses on the exciting convergence of interests between open and distance learning and the recognition of prior learning. The guest editor of this special issue is Dr Dianne Conrad, Director of the Centre for Learning Accreditation at Athabasca University, Canada. Dr Conrad has used her contacts in the community to solicit the quality research articles and field notes that facilitate a deeper understanding of this important and timely topic.
