Pressing Pause

This week has introduced a lot of concepts, some of which might be challenging or new to you. Over the next few steps, we will be looking at putting these concepts into practice – this will entail providing some applied examples of micro-credentials at different institutions around the world. In addition, we will ask you to think about how they might be useful in your own context.

Before we do so, we want to pause, and take a breath! We know that anything of value takes time to process, and the aim of this step is to give you a break to consider any questions which might be bubbling to the surface in your mind. These questions can be about the course content, what you feel you have learnt, or it can even be an opportunity to put the kettle down and go for a walk.

Your course instructors are on hand to help you if we can, but if not, make sure to take a deep breath and enjoy the break!
