Microcredentials in Higher Education—Strategizing the Journey at Your Institution
There is rapidly growing interest in higher education about microcredentials and badges. The why of adopting a microcredential strategy was explored in a recent WCET Frontiers blog, “Considering Your “Why”- How Developing a Microcredential Strategy Will Help Your Students (and Your University) Thrive.” Microcredentials create shorter-term pathways for learners and earners. Additionally, they can aid student recruitment and retention. Microcredentials can also connect pathways and career advancement.
