The CIVIS European University Alliance is pleased to organize an international event on micro-credentials for academic and administrative staff at the level of Life-long Learning and Higher Education Institutions. An important flagship of the European Commission’s agenda, micro-credentials must be specifically designed to address the cultural, personal, societal, and labour market needs for today’s world. This event aims at linking micro-credentials with CIVIS’ promotion of civic values, innovative pedagogies and a challenge-based approach.

Theoretical and methodological sessions will be combined with hands-on training providing a stimulating environment for the exchange of good practices and ideas. Speakers and facilitators range from policymakers to specialists in education programmes, IT experts, global marketers, and scholars belonging to top-level EU Universities.

  • Tuesday 27 June - 9:30 to 11:00 CET
  • Friday 30 June - 10:00 to 13:00 CET
