Abstract

This article places validation of prior learning (VPL) as a tool for a general implementation of lifelong learning. It points out the contradiction between a normal biographical understanding of learning and the demands of accelerating societal development, but at the same time criticizes the tendency towards conceptual instrumentalization in this context, narrowing to the significance for work life. Instead, a broader concept is defined for the learner subject's development of competencies in all areas of life based on life historical experiences. Next, a more theoretical psycho-social understanding of learning processes as reconfigurations of life experiences is reviewed. Finally, it points out the need to develop methods for recognizing all learning processes, which helps to promote competence development based on subjective needs.
