What is a micro-credential?

The University of Antwerp uses the definition of a micro-credential as proposed by the European Union:

A micro-credential is a record of the learning outcomes that a learner has acquired following a small volume of learning. These learning outcomes have been assessed against transparent standards.

The proof is contained in a certified document that lists the name of the holder, the achieved learning outcomes, the assessment method, the awarding body and, where applicable, the qualifications framework level and the credits gained. Micro-credentials are owned by the learner, can be shared, are portable and may be combined into larger credentials or qualifications. They are underpinned by quality assurance following agreed standards.
