Extended deadline for micro-credentials survey
Representatives of higher education institutions in countries that are a member of the Thematic Peer Group B on the Lisbon Recognition Convention are invited to fill in a survey gathering real-life examples of micro-credentials, which will feed into published guidelines on the design, issuing and recognition of micro-credentials. The survey and subsequent publication are conducted through the TPG-LRC CoRE project (“Thematic Peer Group on the implementation of the Lisbon Recognition Convention in EHEA countries – Constructing recognition in the EHEA”).
The survey has two aims:
- Identify relevant elements and aspects of a micro-credential, so as to help highlight their diversity.
- Gather input on current approaches and existing challenges when designing, issuing or recognising a micro-credential.
The survey questionnaire also addresses separately the two main ways in which institutions act with regard to micro-credentials:
- Their design and issuing in Part I.
- Their recognition in Part II.
Respondents may fill in only one of these two parts, or both.
The deadline to respond to the survey is extended to 15 September.
