September 26, 2012

Thompson Rivers University solidified its relationship with the Open University of China (OUC) last Friday as officials from both institutions cut the ribbon on the TRU-OUC Research Centre in Kamloops. The collaboration between the 2 universities involves a broad range of academic activities, including Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition training. Similar to TRU, the OUC runs a credit bank with the functions of credit accreditation, transfer, deposit, and withdrawal. The bank allows learners to establish lifelong learning portfolios and accredit or receive certificates for various learning achievements. The bank conducts accreditation and transfer of credits between degree and non-degree continuing education, and bridges and connects various types of learning achievement.
