Benefit of this resource and how to make the best use of it

Has the university degree had its day ? Is the traditional degree still fit for purpose? Is the micro-credential the next big thing ? How will the unbundling of higher education disrupt the Irish colleges and universities? Will the micro-credential fundamentally transform higher education in the face of Industry 4.0 ? Or is the micro-credential just another act of innovation theatre and passing fad in a long history of failed educational revolutions ? This talk will explore these questions and the relationship between the growth of micro-credentials, new digitally-enabled models of education, and the drive to develop more work-ready graduates and 21st Century lifelong learners.
