UPCEA 2024 Annual Conference

Powering Microcredential Value and Trust

Tuesday, March 26  |  2:45 PM - 3:45 PM

As microcredentials in higher education gain momentum, we must ensure they consistently and continually provide value to learners, issuers, and reviewing organizations. One way to do this is by creating tangible value and transparency in the digital credentials ecosystem. Learn about a new unified coalition of stakeholders working together to establish standardized expectations for common use cases in earning, issuing, and reviewing microcredentials. We will present and discuss the outcomes of their leadership in defining and validating parameters of microcredential quality and trust that supports learner mobility.
