Introduction

STACQ will support institutions in their evaluation of micro-credentials. The project aims to make it more accessible for them to include online and non-formal learning in their recognition and admission practices.

STACQ aspires to support learning mobility based on new forms of learning in the EU and EHEA. It does so by producing both an online evaluation tool for micro-credentials and a paper on the future of the qualification.

Without a clear profile, seeking recognition of a stack of credits is at odds with current good practice in recognition which is based on coherent qualifications and the 5 elements in it.

This project will revisit what a qualification is in light of the current changing education landscape and what the implications are for current good practice in recognition.

Activities
