Micro-Credentials: An Evolving Eco System – INSIGHTS PAPER
Five Skillnet Networks are jointly sponsoring a Feasibility/Research Project on ‘Micro-Credentials – Making Learning Visible’.
This project includes an Insights Paper “Micro-Credentials: An Evolving Eco System” (available below) plus the first National Survey of Perspectives of Employees and Employers on Micro-Credentials, which was discussed in a recent webinar which is available here (Global Voices on Micro-Credentials: What’s Next for Industry in Ireland?).
The Insights Paper is part of a wider feasibility study considering the development of a framework for the recognition of micro-credentials in industry. It follows and builds upon an initial study undertaken by Skillnet Ireland in 2018/2019, which explored the potential of digital badging as a form of micro-credentials in the agri-food sector.
