In response to the societal changes, learning is expected to become more flexible with students being able to choose the pace, place and mode of learning. Micro-credentials are one way to provide this flexibility. They can be a means to increase the effectiveness of higher education and to provide upskilling and reskilling opportunities for the labour force.
This EUA webinar, which is part of the series “Towards the Bologna Process Ministerial Meeting”, discussed micro-credentials from various perspectives. It included the key findings of an EUA study conducted as part of the MICROBOL project, which examines the status of micro-credentials and the applicability and use of Bologna Process tools; the outcomes of the European Commission’s Micro-credentials Consultation Group; and a university perspective on flexible learning and specifically on micro-credentials.
Participation to the webinar upon registration was free of charge and open to all EUA members, as well as other stakeholders with an interest in the Bologna Process, flexible learning, or higher education policy in general.
