The Future Value of Micro-credentialing in VET

29 July 2020

The Australian Vocational Education sector is starting to experience the early stages of major disruption that is happening to all levels of existing, traditional education systems. So is there future value in micro-credential offerings?

Micro-credentials are tipped to be a key part of the solution for dealing with numerous Skill Shortages post-COVID19.

What can RTOs do with the concept of micro-learning, micro-credentials and badging? Explore the possibilities that each of these could bring to your RTO in this webinar. Matthew Dale will unpack how the current VET system, legislation and regulatory framework already have provision for RTOs to develop and deliver both accredited and non-accredited micro-learning and micro-credentials.
You will leave this session with a clear understanding of the difference between micro-learning, micro-credentialing and badging, and will gain insights on how you might start offering micro-credentials in your RTO.

This webinar will also include a Q&A session with experienced facilitator Matthew Dale, to allow you to gain insights on how to start offering micro-credentials in your RTO.

Key topics covered within the webinar

  • What are micro-learning, micro-credentials and digital badges?
  • What micro-learning and micro-credentials could my organisation offer?
  • What is happening across the globe in relation to this multi-billion-dollar micro-learning and micro-credential industry?
  • How to design and implement micro-credentials in your organisation.
