The third session of the EUF network Knowledge Exchange Community on micro-credentials will be held on January 31st at 10:00 CET.

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 focus on the benefits of using micro-credentials and on the current practices in Higher Education. Additionally, we will discuss ongoing developments concerning the development of Common European standards and possible outcomes.

Agenda will be added shortly 

The number of participants is limited. Registration takes place on a first come first served basis. In the event of high interest, a general principle of a maximum of 3 representatives per university may be applied.
