The Guild seminar series: Transnational Collaboration and Lifelong Learning: Looking back – looking forward
Founded in 2016, The Guild comprises twenty-one of Europe’s most distinguished research-intensive universities in sixteen countries and is dedicated to enhancing the voice of academic institutions, their researchers, and their students.
Together with the University of Warwick, they are organizing a seminar that explores lifelong learning in relation to transnational collaboration, with a special focus on the micro-credentials agenda and its potential for universities.
What is the anticipated and desired effect of micro-credentials in research-intensive institutions? Can they be offered alongside current research-based longer degrees, or will they remain peripheral? And how can alternative pathways be funded?
