Report: Microcredentials Not a Strategic Priority for Many Colleges (Inside Higher Ed)
While the majority of colleges focused on online, professional and continuing education have embraced alternative credentials, a significant number of those institutions haven’t made them a strategic priority.
That’s one of the key takeaways from a new study released Monday by UPCEA, the online and professional education association.
“While a lot of institutions want this, they don’t necessarily all know how” to deliver alternative credentials, said Bruce Etter, UPCEA’s senior director of research and consulting. “Embracing it is great, but now it needs to be part of the strategic plan.”
