  1. Educause Review article looks at the opportunities and threats of 'unbundling' aspects of higher education.

"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."

  2. "Micro-credentials are not a silver bullet, but with thoughtful implementation they can supplement and complement quality higher education systems and enable opportunities for learners across the lifespan. A society that works towards more granular certified learning to incentivise its citizens to continue to learn and warrant their achievements will be on the path to a happier and healthier
    culture, and a stronger economy."
    Emeritus Professor Beverley Oliver. (August 2019)
