Microcredentials at UWM
In June 2021 the Microcredentials Work Group (MWG) was charged by Provost Britz to explore the development of a coordinated, comprehensive system of for-credit microcredentialing at UWM. This has included an assessment of potential benefits, national precedents, and policy implications. The MWG has produced a report with recommendations for campus adoption of microcredentials, a draft of a comprehensive campus policy (approved by APCC and GFC; going before the Faculty Senate in April). The MWG also surveyed undergraduates and graduate students on interest in microcredentials for themselves and future students. The survey results (below) show a high level of interest overall and topics of interest for microcredential development.
