Building a well-calibrated micro-learning ecosystem: Opinion


In a recent article for University World News, Libing Wang discusses how higher education could be delivered in a streamlined, efficient manner through a micro-learning ecosystem. Wang argues that shortening and unbundling qualification programs into smaller learning units or micro-credential programs that can be stacked into larger qualifications would provide students with a way to gain relevant, adaptable education. Wang shares that the risk of fragmentation that comes with unbundling can be avoided by creating common frameworks. This framework can then lead to the benefits that come with developing a credit bank network, outsourcing program learning to different providers while being able to easily validate micro-learning experiences, and aligning national quality standards between countries.
