What the market wants

Thanks to the Australian Industry Group yesterday for pointing out what may have occurred to universities. “The needs of the digital economy are also leading to the availability of shorter units of study often termed micro credentials. Companies and workers need to have available greater opportunities for new skill development whenever required as a result of constant new technologies and organisational change. Micro-credentialing, sometimes called badging, is an evolving way to quickly build capabilities as companies’ requirements for work and business change.” They’ll be suggesting unis get into MOOCs next.
