summer internship 2018/19 micro credential

First Micro-credential launched at the Waikato-Tainui College for Research and Development

Over the past year, the College has been exploring the exciting world of micro-credentials and have developed our own digital badging ecosystem. Congratulations to our 2018-2019 Summer Interns who were the first recipients of a micro-credential from the Waikato-Tainui College for Research and Development.

Micro-credentials recognise, validate and attest that specific knowledge, experience and skills have been achieved. Digital badges include metadata or important information about the elements of a course or programme (such as learning outcomes, evaluation/assessment criteria, a purpose statement). Micro-credentials are portable and can be uploaded into email signatures, LinkedIn pages, digital portfolios and digital curriculum vitae to showcase a learner’s achievements.
