Assistant Director for Accreditation and International Cooperation Duska Radmanovic participated in the online seminar "External evaluation of microcredentials" held on September 27, organized by the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ENQA).
At the seminar, working group member Anca Greere, representative of the British Accreditation Council (BAC), presented the ENQA project "Micro-credentials - expectations in quality assurance in the context of ESG". Ester Huertas Hidalgo, representative of the Agency for Quality in Higher Education of Catalonia (Agència per a la Qualitat del Sistema Universitari de Catalunya - AQU) presented the results of a survey carried out as part of the project that showed the current state of practice in the field of quality assurance of microcredentials in the European Higher Education Area (EHEA).

The results of the survey show that quality assurance agencies in higher education approach this issue in completely different ways, from those that do not intend to conduct external evaluation of microcredentials, through those that are developing procedures or intend to develop them, to a smaller number of agencies that are already doing so.
In the continuation of the seminar, Anca Greee, together with Dagmar Provijn from the Accreditation Organization of the Netherlands and Flanders (NVAO) and Ulf Hedbjörk from the Swedish Higher Education Authority (UKÄ), presented expectations and recommendations on the use of ESG (European standards and guidelines for quality assurance in higher education) in microcredentials.
Walter Balfe from Quality and Qualifications Ireland (QQI), together with Anca Greere and Esther Huertas Hidalgo, presented a selection of case studies focusing on the external evaluation of microcredentials.
