With the EU Council Recommendation on Micro-Credentials, the European Union has laid an important foundation for the future development of micro-credentials and thus for lifelong learning and professional development in Europe. The Recommendation seeks to support the development, implementation and recognition of micro-credentials across institutions, businesses, sectors and borders by setting common European standards. In this Empower webinar week, EADTU will put the European approach to micro-credentials in context. It will look at various national responses to the Council Recommendation, how universities and QA agencies plan to deal with micro-credentials and what the perspectives and preferences are of learners and employers. The aim of the event is to share expertise and help European institutions in taking important steps towards high quality, recognized micro-credentials. In this session the current situation of the austrian MOOC platform and micro-credentials is presented.
Die Zeitschrift für Hochschulentwicklung hat einen langen und interessanten Werdegang. In diesem Artikel wollen wir diesen beschreiben und einer Analyse unterwerfen, um die Entwicklung über die Zeit darzustellen. Es wird gezeigt, wie sich Themen und Schwerpunkte verlagern und mit der Hochschul-Praxis einhergehen. Um die Vergleichbarkeit und den Impact der Zeitschrift vorzustellen, werden Überlegungen angestellt, die untermauern, wie wichtig die Rolle der Zeitschrift für die Hochschulen im deutschsprachigen Raum ist, aber auch darüber hinaus. 40 Jahre, davon beinahe 20 Jahre als Open Access, ist ein beachtlicher Zeitraum für ein solches Medium. Dies ist uns daher Anlass, die Entwicklung der Zeitschrift zu reflektieren. English Abstract: The Journal for Higher Education Development has a long and interesting history. In this article, we aim to describe and analyse the publication in order to elaborate the development over time. The analysis shows how the journal's topics and focal points track developments in higher education. In order to show the comparability and impact of the journal, we outline considerations that underpin how important the role of the journal is for higher education institutions in the German-speaking world and beyond. Forty years, almost twenty of them as open access, is a considerable period of time for such a medium. This is therefore an occasion for us to reflect on the development of the journal.
Um einordnen zu können, wie weit sich digitale Innovationen in der Hochschullehre bereits konkret etabliert haben, schlagen die Autorinnen und Autoren vom Team Lehr- und Lerntechnologien der Technischen Universität Graz ein achtstufiges Beurteilungsmodell vor.
