Your information
This virtual event is centered on the question of how higher education institutions (HEIs) can be supported in developing flexible recognition procedures for micro-credentials. We will start with the Micro-Evaluator, an online recognition tool for micro-credentials that was launched in 2022 and has recently been tested and evaluated by HEIs across Europe. HEIs are invited to share examples of procedures and solutions for recognizing micro-credentials from their own practice. We will focus on some of the more salient aspects and stumbling blocks for recognition, such as how to deal with the quality assurance of micro-credentials, certificates from non-formal providers, and applying procedures for Recognition of Prior Learning.

This event is organised in the context of the Erasmus+ co-funded “Automatic Recognition in the European Education Area 2025” (AR25) project (https://www.nuffic.nl/en/subjects/recognition-projects/ar25-2023-2025), which aims to support the creation of the European Education Area by 2025.

For whom?
Admission offices, international student offices, departments of lifelong learning and quality assurance, institutional initiatives aimed at widening participation (e.g., bursary schemes for students from disadvantaged backgrounds), and anyone interested in the recognition of micro-credentials.

Learning outcomes: peer learning for HEI employees, focusing on recognition of micro-credentials. Specific attention will be given to the quality assurance of micro-credentials, dealing with micro-credentials from non-formal providers, RPL, and policies for credit transfer. You will also learn about different European initiatives related to these themes.

Deadline for registration: 16 September 2024.
