The future of university education: competency-based micro-credentialing as the path forward?
Micro-credentialing is an emerging educational trend that emphasizes competency-based learning with particular labour markets in mind. Its goal is to improve student preparedness and workforce marketability.
We are asking you to take a short (5-10 minute) survey aimed at helping us better understand employer perceptions of micro-credentialing and its potential role in the future of university education. Your participation in this electronic survey is completely voluntary and anonymous. The results will be included in an internal report used solely for the purposes of informing educational practices (project titled: The future of university education: competency-based micro-credentialing as the path forward?).
The deadline for completing the survey is Friday October 30th.
Thank you for your time.
