  1. A report of a workshop on whether micro-credentials can be used as an indicator of success in tertiary study. It raises important questions about the validity and reliability of micro-credentials from a College Admissions perspective and highlights the need for some shared understanding and a standardised framework or ecosystem to support their use. Suggests micro-credentials provide the opportunity to rethink traditional learning structures and develop a new learning culture.

  2. Educause Review article looks at the opportunities and threats of 'unbundling' aspects of higher education. In relation to micro-credentials there are issues around 'value, stigma and legitimacy' which can challenge traditional education pathways, or be used to challenge more flexible pathways. "certification is an equity issue" Commercialization v's democratic citizenship.
    "Higher education is a hybrid ecology. Other possibilities for shaping provision include the model of the commons. The idea of the commons places knowledge and educators as knowledge producers in charge at the center, in a shared understanding. This approach foregrounds co-creation and participation. It develops governance mechanisms premised on shared resources. And it shifts the discourse from a market-led higher education knowledge economy to an open, collaborative, learning-led knowledge society."
