March 25, 2021
Labour Education Applied Research North (LEARN) has published the results of a study on micro-credentials conducted by Academica Group. LEARN is a joint initiative between the Northern Alberta Development Council and five postsecondary institutions: Athabasca University, Grande Prairie Regional College, Keyano College, Northern Lakes College, and Portage College. The report explores policies, strategies, and trends related to micro-credentials with a focus on Northern Alberta. The study broadly found that there is a need to develop a common definition, as well as a framework for outcomes, assessments, and quality assurance in order to deliver micro-credentials effectively.
