IGlobal trends suggest that micro-credentials, short courses, and flexible learning pathways will become a dominant feature of education and training. IIEP-UNESCO is launching a blueprint paper that explores ways to organize micro-credentials as a means for offering up-to-date, quality learning to much larger segments of the population, thus creating flexible learning pathways, fostering learner autonomy, and formally acknowledging competencies. The paper presents seven recommendations targeted at public policy-makers to take coordinated action.
This upcoming webinar will formally launch the blueprint paper, bringing together international experts, mainly from UNESCO involved in work on micro-credentials. Speakers will discuss the pertinence of the paper and how its recommendations resonate with their work and existing developments in different world regions.
