Micro-credentials: current practices and future developments?

January 12, 2022
 

Online event for EUF universities

Audience: Staff members from EUF network universities (administrative and academic staff)

Date: February 10th, 2022, from 10:00 to 11:00 CET

Registration is open only to staff members from EUF network universities.

The third session of the EUF network Knowledge Exchange Community on micro-credentials will be held on February 10th at 10:00 CET, chaired by Ignacio Rodriguez, Policy Advisor for Internationalisation at the University of Alcalá. 

Micro-credentials provide a great tool to certify the acquisition of new skills, and have therefore gained growing interest among learners, education providers and policymakers. In order to reach their full potential, micro-credentials should adhere to common standards ensuring quality, transparency, cross-border comparability, recognition and portability.

In this session, we will discuss the role of universities in the ongoing developments and we will focus on the quality assurance, recognition and certification of micro-credentials by looking into current practices in higher education.
