MICROBOL recommendations to the EU public consultation on micro-credentials

MICROBOL has published its Recommendations for the European Commission’s consultation on “Micro-credentials – broadening learning opportunities for lifelong learning and employability”.

In this document, the MICROBOL project aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the main observations, challenges and solutions in relation to micro-credentials based on the outputs of the three MICROBOL Working Groups on Quality Assurance, Recognition and Qualifications Framework & ECTS. They provide recommendations to overcome challenges, highlighting the way forward for micro-credentials in general and giving a contribution to the consultation in the view of a EU Council Recommendation on micro-credentials.

The document not only provides specific recommendations to the three Bologna key commitments, but also gives recommendations on transversal topics, including the role of higher education in lifelong learning, a common standard for micro-credentials and digitalisation.
