Designing and Implementing Micro-Credentials: A Guide for Practitioners

This online publication is aimed at educational providers, introducing key aspects of the design and implementation of micro-credentials

Many organisations are experimenting with micro-credentials, while others are emerging to collect, publish and offer credentials. The decision to engage with these new forms of credentials will be influenced by many factors, as described in this guide. Each organisation will need to assess their own level of maturity as new and innovative forms of credentialing continue to evolve. The organisational appetite for change, its culture and readiness, and the availability of resources to support all the stakeholders involved in the journey should inform each implementation strategy and accompanying operational planning activities.

This report provides a short practical introduction to education providers/educators into the design and implementation of micro-credentials
