From badges to bundles, stacks of credits to microcredentials, the list of alternative credentials for higher education is growing. Partly in response to learner and employer demand but also partly in response to universities' economic situation post-pandemic. 

But for those who haven’t dared to even dip their toe into the alternative credential pond, where should they begin? How do you train your staff and ensure credit-bearing courses fit into your institution’s curriculum? Most importantly, how do you ensure these courses meet quality standards?

Tim Blackman, vice-chancellor at the UK's Open University, and Kemi Jona, assistant vice-chancellor for digital innovation and enterprise learning at Northeastern University, speak to us about what universities should take into consideration when they're exploring alternative credentials and how the field is evolving.
