VET Micro-credentialing in the tourism sector

Digital media have created unprecedented opportunities to connect, communicate and learn, in non-formal and informal environments. Digital badges are validated indicators of an accomplishment, skill, quality, or interest that can be earned in many learning environments. In education, badges are becoming the preferred way to recognise micro-credentials, as qualifications on units of learning that focus on skills or competences.

The BadgeTour project aims at creating a set of digital tools and resources to boost Vocational Education and Training (VET) providers and trainers’ knowledge and skills on the creation and use of digital badges and micro-credentials in VET learning in the tourism sector.
