Facilitator Biography

Dr. Annie Prud’homme-Généreux (she/her) led the consultation and adaptation of the BCcampus Micro-credential Toolkit for B.C. under the advice and direction of the BCcampus Competency Working Group. Annie’s interest in micro-credentials stems from her experiences working outside academia, including executive leadership at a non-profit organization and serving on the board of directors of the North Vancouver Chamber of Commerce. Through these experiences, she observed firsthand the need for short, work-aligned, competency-based training to help adults retrain and retool throughout her career. Most recently, she served as director of Continuing Studies at Capilano University, where she shepherded the development of over 60 new online stackable courses to support adult learners throughout their careers. She also co-led the Provost’s Micro-credential Advisory Group, tasked with suggesting a vision and priorities for micro-credentials at the institution. A pioneer in education who isn’t afraid to innovate, she was a founder of Quest University Canada. She is an instructor at UBC, develops curriculum at TRU Open Learning, conducts education research at Athabasca University, and oversees quality assurance of degrees in Alberta.
