Where to start with micro-credentials and digital badges
There’s been a growing trend in the education sector towards short-form and alternative learning courses - accelerated by the advent of the global COVID-19 pandemic. While you may recognise that your institution needs to get into this space to compete, it can be difficult to know where to get started with micro-credentials and digital badges.
We’ve compiled a range of resources below that will help bring you up to speed with the rise of micro-credentials, what you can do to get started and where you can go for further information. You’ll also learn about Credentialate - the world’s first Credential Evidence Platform that helps you discover and share evidence of workplace skills.
Skills-first evidence alignment
Traditionally, digital credentials are created by linking to the course’s learning outcomes. With Credentialate, the world’s first Credential Evidence Platform, education providers could also include a personalised evidence page with qualitative and quantitative detail of achievement.
Now, Credentialate has developed Skills-First Evidence Alignment, in recognition and support of the burgeoning skills economy, as a way for educator to apply backwards-design to micro-credential development.
Mastery approach - by aligning the curriculum to skills and competencies, learners can fill the gaps in their learning and build towards mastery of a particular skill or competency
Get actionable insights - the institution can identify gaps and be agile in adapting to meet market needs
Career-aligned evidence record - with personalised evidence, learners can speak confidently to their skills and competencies and easily share proof of same
Surfaces durable (transferable) and domain specific skills - institutions can identify both from within their curriculum
Speed to market - get a micro-credential program up and running quicker, using existing course content and learner data already captured by the institution
Strengthen recruitment strategy - as industry needs are the first consideration, graduates are job-ready as soon as they graduate, creating more competitive course offerings
Platform flexibility - at every stage, Credentialate gives you the option to configure to your unique requirements to get the outcomes you want
The power of Credentialate, lies in its ability to:
- Collect and aggregate learner data from multiple sources into a centralised system
- Align data to in-demand skills and competencies, frameworks and labour market data
- Issue a personalised evidence record with qualitative and quantitative detail
- Track and manage competency achievement outside of course silos
More than that, Credentialate:
