AACRAO Alternative Credentials Initiative / Report

Overview

AACRAO’s initiative for alternative credentials highlights opportunities and challenges for higher education and empowers registrars as key stakeholders in this conversation. The report (AACRAO alternative credentials workgroup report, 2022) breaks down considerations and best practices into six sections that focus on:

  1. What micro-credentials are
  2. Why a campus might consider offering micro-credentials
  3. Who should be involved in proposing alternative credentials, and who are the potential learner populations
  4. How micro-credential initiatives might be implemented for long-term success
  5. Where micro-credentials and digital badges might be recorded and referenced
  6. When alternative credentials should be awarded to foster their relevance and usefulness to learners.
