Navigating micro-credentials: institutional, national, and European perspectives

Accessibility

New developments in higher education usually come with high hopes and big concerns. Therefore, an upcoming webinar as part of the Erasmus+ MicroNet project will bring a sense of reality to often rather polarised scenarios by sharing institutions’ experiences of exploring micro-credentials and examples of national and European approaches.For example, for learners and their employers there is the promise of better, quicker, cutting-edge, more flexible learning, with less barriers and at lower costs through micro-credentials. Meanwhile, providers look to better serving society and responding to skills needs - but may also look at micro-credentials as a new or additional income source, or even a new business model. In addition, policy makers see a way to boost lifelong learning in light of demographic change and rapid and unpredictable economic and societal transformation.That said, there are also major concerns, such as loss of quality, challenges regarding the award and recognition of the micro-credentials, and that this might bring about a transition from reliable publicly owned structures and institutions providing reliable degrees to ‘gig education’.During this webinar, institutions from different European countries will present their projects and share some of their successes and challenges. The discussions will also take into consideration the community of learners and external partners and analysis of the role and impact of system and European level policies and frameworks for the successful use of micro-credentials.    AndroidiOS
