Tokens Versus Degrees: Microcredentials for Career Pivots and Continuous Professional Development

Date Thursday, Nov 24  Time   –    Room Potsdam III

Today’s learners are increasingly looking for microcredentials and digital badges to document their in-demand skills or augment their existing degree through new specialisations within their field, lending themselves to upskilling or career pivots. So how can they be issued within the context of continuous professional development in higher education institutions? Join this session if you want to help building new ways in which new skills can become widely recognised.
