Abstract
Microcredentials recognise smaller packages of learning than traditional educational qualifications. There are a number of potential benefits that may be offered by using these small packages of learning before, during and/or after the delivery of traditional courses. However, there are also some concerns about the approach. This presentation will look at what microcredentials are, their potential benefits and issues, how they are used and how they could be used in the NZDE and BEngTech programmes.
