Plenary with Beverley Oliver: Global Developments in Microcredentials and Associated "Hot Issues"

This keynote will focus on the increasing global attention on micro-credentials, and give a snapshot of global developments as well as associated ‘hot issues’. Chief among these issues are: how we define micro-credentials and badges; whether traditional degrees and providers will be related to micro-credentials; the skills economy and employability for mature learners including displaced workers; and the global conversations required to ensure interoperability: across sectors, industries, borders, lifespans and digital systems. In five years’ time, the micro-credential trend will be seen as a fad that disappointed us, or as a key step towards reimagining lifelong learning, depending on how we handle these issues collaboratively in the short term.
