QAA Scotland is undertaking a sector-wide project entitled Understanding Micro-credentials and Small Qualifications in Scotland. This project seeks to compliment the development of a Characteristics Statement and webinar series QAA are delivering across 2021-22, and will build on the outcomes of the 2020-21 Collaborative Cluster project, Exploring the Potential of Micro-credentials and Digital Badging.

 

The sector-wide project will gather and analyse perspectives of HE practitioners regarding the understanding, use and development of micro-credentials. Outcomes from a survey we are undertaking in winter 2021 will help to inform a glossary of shared language, to aid the understanding of micro-credentials amongst key stakeholders (including students, employers and PSRBs) and help develop the portability of micro-credentials and small qualifications across the tertiary sector.


Building on themes from the QAA micro-credentials webinar series, sessions at the Enhancement Themes conference in June 2022 will enable providers to come together to hear about models of practice in streamlining quality assurance processes for micro-credentials and small qualifications and to start to explore and map what the student experience looks like for a learner in this area.
