The Prior Learning International Research Consortium (PLIRC), a project of Open Learning, aims to stimulate innovative and provocative research concerning the recognition of prior learning. According to Dr. Christine Wihak, former Director of PLAR and also the Director of PLIRC, the consortium provides an international forum for networking amongst scholars of PLAR and will actively promote dissemination of research findings to practitioners and policy makers alike.

"PLAR lies at the intersection of research on workplace, learning and society," Dr. Wihak said.

PLIRC, which is a virtual consortium operating from the BC Centre for Open Learning, invites other international academic and applied researchers to participate.
