(Paper launch) Short courses, micro-credentials, and flexible learning pathways: A blueprint for policy development and action
Global trends suggest that micro-credentials, short courses, and flexible learning pathways will become a dominant feature of education and training. IIEP-UNESCO is launching a blueprint paper that explores ways to organize micro-credentials as a means for offering up-to-date, quality learning to much larger segments of the population, thus creating flexible learning pathways, fostering learner autonomy, and formally acknowledging competencies. The paper presents seven recommendations targeted at public policy-makers to take coordinated action.

This upcoming webinar will formally launch the blueprint paper, bringing together international experts, mainly from UNESCO involved in work on micro-credentials. Speakers will discuss the pertinence of the paper and how its recommendations resonate with their work and existing developments in different world regions.

**Please note, many people have registered for this event. Should we exceed maximum occupancy of 500 people, we will post the webinar online and share the link with all registrants. Please join the webinar a few minutes early to secure your place.
