Dr Judy Harris
Judy is Adjunct Professor at Thompson Rivers University (TRU), British Columbia, Canada, and was the first Visiting Scholar to be hosted by the Open Learning division of TRU in 2010. She has been in education-related employment for more than two decades (County of Avon LEA, University of Cape Town, Institute of Education [University of London]).
Her Master’s degree (University of Manchester) was in the Management and Administration of Higher and Further Education. She completed her PhD (Open University) in 2005. Her professional experience and research interests lie at the multiple intersections of further and higher education, non-traditional learners, community, industry, profession, occupation and workplace. These have taken different empirical expressions over the years, most particularly Widening Participation, the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) and Work-based Learning, and have spanned academic, policy and practitioner dimensions in the UK and in South Africa.
As a freelance researcher, she has recently acted as a consultant to the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Salford and is an international advisor to a South African Qualification Authority national research project on RPL.
Judy co-edited (with Per Andersson) Re-theorising the Recognition of Prior Learning (Leicester: NIACE) (2006). A companion volume Researching the Recognition of Prior Learning will be published in June 2011.
