I'm interested in the panelists opinions on the need for evidence to underpin micro-credentials
Professor Mark Brown

I also share with everyone that the recently formed International Council on Badges and Credentials is seeking to bring our various voices and questions together - see: https://ic-badges-credentials.org/en/

1) employers whom are hiring should work closely with micro credentials stakeholders in universities to state out the micro credential skills required by the job roles and the candidates (especially graduates) whom can be upskilled and reskilled via the micro credentials in universities as part of the employers’ onboarding program that candidates to be hired can deliver employers’ expectations in a more industry and motivated to learn on the job manner as employability is upmost important? (2) Also, should micro credentials in universities be vendor neutral?
Joanna Stroud
01:10:26
Sounds good Karen. I think assessing LOs as part of a microcredential is something I've assumed but possibly not been explicit enough about!
Professor Mark Brown
