Meta-data Standard for Micro-credentials
This work is being done within the MicroHE – Support Future Learning Excellence through Micro-Credentialing in Higher Education (Erasmus+, KA3) project which aims to improve the recognition and transfer of learning between different educational organizations and the world of work while maintaining the European tradition of high-levels of student-protection provided through systems of accreditation and quality assurance. From gathering the state of the art in micro-credentialing in European Higher Education today, through forecasting the impacts and examining the adequacy of European recognition instruments, the project proposes a meta-data standard to develop an online clearinghouse to facilitate recognition, transfer, portability of micro-credentials in Europe.
