EQUAM LA Webinar – Quality assurance and recognition of micro-credentials: from concept to practice in Colombian higher education

On 7 December, the Asociación Colombiana de Universidades – ASCUN –  in collaboration with OBREAL Global in the framework of the project EquamLa organised a webinar with the title: “Quality assurance and recognition of micro-credentials: from concept to practice in Colombian higher education“.

The objectives of the event were:

  • Share international definitions and applications regarding the concept of micro-credentials at the level of universities and generate a better understanding of the way in which the term is applied in practice.
  • Target university managers at different stages of progress regarding micro-credentials and share concrete challenges, approaches, and experiences regarding micro-credentials. What are the strategies behind them? Who do they target and why?
  • Examine practices from Europe regarding quality assurance of micro-credentials and their respective recognition between institutions and countries and on the labour market.

About the EQUAM LA Project

Equam-La aims at advancing the Latin American Higher Education Space in areas such as recognition of degrees and credits across borders by reinforcing and connecting quality assurance systems for higher education, in which universities and QA agencies are key partners and drivers

Equam-La hence proposes to support universities and national agencies to work together to improve and reinforce internal QA management and processes and link them to specific areas, like recognition, so as to underpin regional integration.
