Credentialing uni educators: by locals for locals

There’s a new framework, based on regulations aligning with qualifications and covering micro-credentials. Plus its portable across universities

The snappily titled, Taxonomy for Credentialing Australasian University Educators is  HERE.*

The resource is by Maree Dinan-Thompson (James Cook U) and 15 colleagues and is published by the Council of Australasian University Leaders in Learning and Teaching.

The taxonomy sets out six core focus areas for educators at  three skill levels and provides 14 sets of information a credentials outline must include, “to assure consistency, transparency, credibility, and portability.”

It’s a comprehensive product, created in and   for local markets – in contrast to the widely used UK based Advance HE Standards.
