To address challenges and demands from current society, life long learning is necessary for each citizen to keep up to the changing demands on knowledge and skills. More and more, skills development and knowledge acquisition takes place outside a formal educational institution (e.g. on the workplace or in environments like sports clubs or theater). For educational institutions this demands a high rate of flexibility in programs. One of the measures to realize this is to recognize and reward smaller parts of a program (micro-credentialing). Fontys School of ICT therefore is developing a vision on this phenomenon. This vision addresses questions like: what requirements are minimal needed for recognition of skills and knowledge or how to recognize skills gathered in a non-formal setting. In this presentation we will present some backgrounds on micro-credentialing and the current state of the vision. We will then discuss with participants about their ideas of micro-credentialing and open badges.
