The MICROBOL Desk Research Report on micro-credentials is now available. This report is part of the MICROBOL project and examines the current status of micro-credentials, which have attracted interest in recent times as a means to increase the effectiveness and flexibility of higher education and to provide upskilling and reskilling opportunities for the labour force. The report was compiled by EUA and serves as a starting point to further investigate how micro-credentials can be linked to the Bologna Key Commitments.

The MicroHE consortium held the final conference of the MicroHE project as part of the EDEN 2020 Annual Virtual Conference, hosted by the Politechnica University Timisoara, Romania in virtual form. The final conference started with the keynote presentation of Anthony Camilleri about Micro-Credentials in the Future European Policy Landscape.
After the plenary session the MicroHE strand was continued in workshop form in 3 workshop sessions.
- Impact of micro-credentials on new learner paradigms
- Technology powering the future of micro-credentials
- Impacts of Micro-Credentials on Institutional Processes
The numbers were impressive: over 100 participants during Anthony Camilleri’s presentation, + about 90 following on Youtube, and over 100 attendees (online and on YouTube) in each of the 3 workshops.
