Nowadays, most employers expect their workers to continually seek out learning opportunities. Micro-credentials offer students and working professionals alike a way to bulk up their resumes with field-specific skills.

Micro-credentials are like certifications. Students or professionals take courses and develop specific skills in certain fields. This could include topics like: (1)

  • Teaching writing in K-12 classrooms
  • Leading effective business meetings
  • Customer service e-mail etiquette
  • Applying leadership skills in the workplace
  • Front-end web development
  • …and thousands more.

 

Micro-credentials are also sometimes called: (2)

  • Digital badges
  • Micro-certifications
  • Web badges
  • Mini-degrees
  • Nano-degrees

How Are They Earned?

Earning a micro-credential is like taking a shortened version of a college course. Some are online, some are in a classroom setting. For a badge, you might be asked to: (3)

  • Complete a number of assignments
  • Attend lectures/seminars
  • Present a portfolio of work on the subject
  • Pass assessments or skill tests
  • Attend national/international conferences
  • Display application of knowledge in a work setting

 

Earning a micro-credential can take anywhere from four weeks to a year, depending on the skill being developed and expectations of the course. (4)

Sites that offer micro-credentials:

  • Openbadges.org
  • Educase.edu
  • edX.org
  • Generalassemb.ly
  • DavinciCoders.com
  • Udacity.com

Are Micro-credentials Important?

Employers and employees both seem to be in favor of gaining skills for professional development.

  • 95% were interested in the micro-credentials of potential hires. (6)
  • 76%
  • Percentage of employees who say they want opportunities for career growth (7)
  • 15%
  • Rise of spending in training and development by employers in 2014 (7)

PhD – Doctor of Philosophy

The goal of the PhD program is to prepare the next generation of leading researchers.

 

The PhD is a program of independent, self-directed academic research degree, supported by a team of supervisors that makes an original contribution to knowledge written up in a publishable dissertation. The PhD program also supports the development of research and generic skills to equip you to operate successfully as a professional researcher in any setting. The essential requirement of a PhD is the creation of new knowledge. Being a researcher means developing new ideas and improving understanding through the creation of new knowledge. Your research will inevitably build to some degree on the work and ideas of others, but as a research student you are expected to make an original contribution to knowledge in your discipline.

 

Each PhD student  must take a number of online modules and also complete a dissertation. Students must defend their dissertation in a “viva voce” (oral) examination. The viva voce examination is an intense and challenging experience, but we offer workshops and mock examinations to help our research students prepare and almost all research students who reach this stage go on to successfully complete their degree.
