About the Session:
Join us on November 16, at 12:00 p.m., as we dig into the Design section of the BCcampus Micro-credential Toolkit for B.C.
Facilitated by story contributor Susan Forseille from Thompson Rivers University, this session will look at how micro-credentials intersect with education pathways. Susan will define Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR) and apply it to micro-credentials. She’ll also explain the draft Critical Information Summary and its role in education pathways.
