Micro-Credentialisation and Digital Assessment: DigiProf connects with EdDiCo

In springtime 2022, a team of researchers started collaborating in the DigiProf project on transparent assessment strategies for online learning, aiming to enhance the digital competences of professors. As Micro-Credentals are pivotal and indispensable features of future learning ecosystems, the EdDiCo Learning Maturity Model was adopted in DigiProf for describing competences in the area of digital assessment. CompetencesSubset 4.4, (Micro-) Credentialisation, is all about designing credentials for facilitating recognition. ‘Competence subset 4.5, Recognition, perfectly describes the purpose of transparent assessment. The current work in DigiProf centers around creating training material for digitally competent professors and educators, again referring to these two competence descriptions.
