Abstract

This report is part of the MICROBOL project and examines the status of micro-credentials, which have attracted interest in recent times as a means to increase the effectiveness and flexibility of higher education and to provide upskilling and reskilling opportunities for the labour force. The report explores how micro-credentials are perceived by different actors. Policymakers see micro-credentials as a way to address the short-term needs identified in society or the labour market. Higher education institutions, which are key providers of micro-credentials, see them as a way to provide more targeted and specialised training. Learners perceive them as an entry mechanism to a degree programme or as a way to acquire interdisciplinary knowledge and skills. Yet, employers seem to be unfamiliar with micro-credentials and generally do not consider alternative credentials as substitutes for conventional higher education qualifications but rather as complementary to them. The review of state of play indicates that the lack of a clear definition and of standards regarding the mode of delivery, duration, assessment process, validation, stackability, or incorporation of micro-credentials into larger credentials creates confusion among all concerned.This report is part of the MICROBOL project and examines the status of micro-credentials, which have attracted interest in recent times as a means to increase the effectiveness and flexibility of higher education and to provide upskilling and reskilling opportunities for the labour force.
