In a time where knowledge and skills need to be updated constantly, a three- or four-year degree may not suit the currency required in many jobs and other work. A student’s employability and entrepreneurship abilities need to be contemporary and flexible. However, recognising them in a way that is translatable across academia and work providers is limited. This paper surveys how some universities approach micro-credentialing to maintain the currency of their offerings and how the Australian higher education landscape is evolving to meet this need. Also discussed is the perception of the universities’ presence in this space as informed by the survey.</p> </div> </div> </div> 2019-11-15T00:00:00+11:00 Copyright (c) 2019 Ratna Selvaratnam, Michael Sankey
