Micro-credentials in the EU and as an opportunity for the development of the Italian university system
When: 14.30 - 16.30
ECIU University, the European Consortium of Innovative Universities, is one of the 41 European universities alliances that have been selected as part of the Erasmus+ programme. ECIU has thirteen members, including the University of Trento, that have a few things in common: they are internationally-oriented, care about quality and innovation in teaching and learning and research, are committed to innovation and entrepreneurship.
ECIU University aims to innovate teaching and learning in Europe through the development of high quality educational practices where students, researchers, public organizations, companies and citizens can collaborate to find innovative solutions that will benefit society as a whole. ECIU will be among the first to support the micro-credential movement and the technology it requires.
The micro-credentialing movement supports more flexible and adaptable learning methods. A Europe-wide approach that will strengthen and expand learning opportunities and the role of higher education institutions, including in the area of vocational training and life-long learning.
The workshop aims to give an overview of Italian and European perspectives for higher education institutions. The speakers will present emerging trends and scenarios at national and European level, and describe the experience of UniTrento.
