About the book

Open Learning and Formal Credentialing in Higher Education: Curriculum Models and Institutional Policies

This book Open Learning and Formal Credentialing in Higher Education: Curriculum Models and Institutional Policies [Keppell, Reushle & Antonio] published by IGI Global, will explore the philosophy, politics, theories, debates, curriculum models and assessment practices associated with the development of formal credentials in response to open and lifelong learning. The growth of access to “learning anywhere anytime” enabled through open education practices and open education resources (OERs), has led to increasing pressure for Higher Education institutions to develop relationships between a learner’s lifelong and personalized learning; and formal qualifications. The book will document advances and innovations in the design, implementation and integration of curriculum models that include recognition practices and credentials for open and lifelong learning. These advances include, but are not exclusive to, the emergence of digital badges and backpacks; credit pathways for MOOCS; learning pathways for lifelong learning; innovative recognition pedagogies that formalise open education practices, assessment practices responsive to prior informal learning, and ePortfolios used for credentialing purposes.

All chapters have been reviewed on a double-blind review basis. The book is scheduled to be published by IGI Global (formerly Idea Group Inc.), to be released in early 2015.
