University launches new K-State Microcredentials website

Submitted by Kevin Chrisjohn

Coinciding with the conclusion of a year-long pilot program, Kansas State University has launched a new K-State Microcredentials website

The site includes a directory of microcredential opportunities, resources for faculty and staff to develop a microcredential, and information explaining the purpose and value of microcredentials. Designed to be streamlined and easy to navigate, the site follows the same user-focused and mobile-first best practices as other K-State websites.

“Microcredentials deliver an important piece in the ongoing success and progress of K-State’s vision as a next-generation land-grant university,” said Karen Pedersen, dean of K-State Global Campus. “Thanks to the collaboration and dedicated service across the entire university, we are able to extend our ability to support students, professionals and lifelong learners throughout their careers.”

The microcredential program is a result of the K-State Microcredential Initiative and is administered through K-State Global Campus. Microcredentials are high-quality, market-aligned opportunities that allow learners to study and demonstrate skills or competencies in specific areas. They are more focused and smaller than a minor, certificate or degree program, and they can be stand-alone or stackable.
