I-HE2020 Introduction to EMC & Common Microcredential Framework

  1. 1. Founding partners 3,000 MOOCs 400 higher education institutions 5 Languages
  2. 2. EMC-LM: MOOCs for the labour marker Lifelong learning , continuing education and continuous professional development are underdeveloped in large parts of the EU (see EU Education and Training Monitor, 2017) 40% of European employers face problems with recruiting employees with the right qualifications. So even though the workforce is in real need of continuous learning opportunities – the current education and training offer is not enough. EMC-LM brings together MOOC platforms, universities and public employment services to meet the learning needs of the European labour market.
  3. 3. Create a framework defining the role of MOOC platforms, universities, employment services and companies/sectors in organizing MOOCs and digital continuous education and training To empower universities, employment services and companies in (co-)developing, (co-)delivering and using MOOCs for CE, CPD/CVT in order to integrate MOOCs and digital education and training in current offerings EU-wide EMC-LM: MOOCs for the labour marker
  4. 4. Growing demand for shorter programmes Ongoing practice in MOOCs and online short programmes is rapidly growing Europe and world-wide. There is a major variation in credentials awarded for them: micromasters, nanodegrees, mastertracks etc. No consistency in qualifications leads to confusion. Clarity on qualifications is of utmost importance for learners, universities and employers. At the moment the current situation is hindering the breakthrough of MOOC programmes, online continuous education / CPD in general and career development while careers become longer Erasmus+ European MOOC Consortium Labour Market
  5. 5. Our Ambitions – Micro-Credentials EMC partners aim to: - Lay the foundations for a new qualification to address the needs of employers and learners looking for smaller units of study that develop relevant skills - Enable courses to be recognised towards formal qualifications - Enable courses to be stackable across different higher education systems in Europe and beyond Framework to be integrated more widely by European universities and agencies to facilitate collaborations
  6. 6. Model: Common Microcredential Framework (CMF) - Have a total workload 100 - 150 hours (4-6 ECTS) - Be levelled at Level 5, Level 6 (bachelor) Level 7 (Master) in the European Qualification Framework or the equivalent levels in the University’s national qualification framework - Provide assessment enabling the award of academic credit, either following successful completion of the Course or via Recognition of Prior Learning upon enrolment as a student on the University’s course - Operate a reliable method of ID verification at the point of assessment - Provide a transcript setting out the learning outcomes for a Course, hours of study required, EQF level and number of credit points earned - Courses should be designed so that the number of hours per week is manageable - Courses aimed at employees or workplace skills should combine theory and practice to ensure their learning directly relevant in the workplace And…
  7. 7. Partnerships for Success In order to achieve our goals we must engage a range of relevant European stakeholders; - Universities - Public Employment Organisations - Companies and Business sectors - Training Organisations - Ministries - European Union - … and of course Individual Learners
  8. 8. European Commision – A European Approach to Micro-Credentials The European Skills Agenda adopted on 1 July 2020 announced as one of its 12 flagship actions a new initiative to support the quality, transparency and take-up of micro- credentials across the EU. The Commission Communication on the European Education Area published on 30 September 2020 further emphasises the key role of Higher Education in supporting lifelong learning and reaching out to a more diverse student body. A new EU framework for micro-credentials will help widen learning opportunities and strengthen the role of higher education and vocational education and training institutions in lifelong learning by providing more flexible and modular learning opportunities.
