Session 06B

The global digital credentialling ecosystem: challenges, opportunities and impact

Digital credentialling, which started way back in the 1990s, is on the verge of becoming the standard in student exchanges and degree awarding. In this session, we will show how the impacts of this development – as promoted by the Groningen Declaration Network – go beyond simple student data administration. Digital credentialling makes lifelong learning and learner agency a reality, furthers international mobility and employment, and breathes life into the Sustainable Development Goals.
