I’m currently working on a European-funded project on the labour market (EMC-LM) with the European MOOC Consortium . We met in Brussels on 5 February 2020 for our annual consortium meeting, followed the next day by a Peer Learning Activity with a range of stakeholders from across the continent.
Peer Learning Activity information
MOOCs and online learning opportunities for the Labour Market
The European MOOC Consortium with the main platforms (Fututurelearn, France Université Numérique, Miariadax, EduOpen and OpenupEd) joins forces in a knowledge alliance with the public employment services, sectoral organizations and companies for the development, delivery and use of MOOCs for the labour market.
More than 2000 MOOC offerings are available from these platforms collaborating with 250 European frontrunner universities. Furthermore, European universities start policies for continuing education in which online short (postgraduate) courses and programmes play a key role.
Also, a Common Microcredential Framework is adopted by European MOOC platforms and by universities organizing online short learning programmes for continuing professional development. Recognized awards are delivered to students according to the European Qualification Framework and fitting to Europass.
On 6th February 2020, the knowledge alliance will organise a Peer Learning Activity with experts for MOOC platforms, universities, public employment services/Ministries of Employment, sectoral organizations and companies.
