Micro-credentials are in a state of prolific creation. But the lack of proven practices and increasing number of competitors are creating challenges for higher education.

The lack of proper guidance, frameworks and innovative practices to lean on, higher education institutions are falling short to non-traditional providers in the micro-credential playing field. 

In this thought-provoking session, a panel of experts will explore: 

  • How institutions can navigate this challenging market
  • Why non-traditional providers are flooding the micro-credential market, and how universities can compete
  • What innovative practices and frameworks are being developed around the globe
  • Which micro-credential management solutions are in the market and how universities can decide the best one for them

Attendees will walk away with actionable insights on how to create a micro-credential strategy and better manage and govern their curriculum data.

Who should attend?

This event has been specifically designed for senior leaders, managers and university staff who are passionate micro-credentials, professional development, and learning and teaching.
