Innovating university teaching with microcredentials:
an ongoing experiment.
Perla, L., Vinci, V., Scarinci, A.
An experimentation of micro-credentials through a pilot service learning course on students’ transversal competences at the University of Bari Aldo Moro (Uniba) will be presented. The recognition process of micro-credentials is emerging at Uniba, which is advancing the first steps of curricular models certified through micro-credentials, therefore personalised, exportable, focused on skills traditionally excluded from the formal curricula of university courses, designed in an interdisciplinary way also with experts from the territory. An experimental research protocol is envisaged with the comparison of two homologous pedagogical courses – one with the integration of the pilot course on micro-credit, the other without – in order to understand its impact on students’ outgoing skills.
