Symposium 2024 on 26/11/2024

Ensuring equal Inclusion

The 4th ICoBC Symposium is focused on the theme of “Ensuring equal Inclusion,” which explores the importance of creating a level playing field for all learners, regardless of their background or circumstances. This theme builds on the previous symposiums, “From Theory to Practice“, “The journey of the champions“, and “Connecting the dots“, which emphasized the need to bridge the gap between theory and practice, celebrate the successes of digital badges and verifiable micro-credentials, and connect stakeholders across the ecosystem.

Ensuring equal inclusion is particularly important when it comes to the design and adoption of digital badges and verifiable micro-credentials globally. These credentials have the potential to transform the way we recognize and validate learning, but only if they are designed and implemented in a way that is equitable and accessible to all. Without equal inclusion, some learners may be left behind, perpetuating existing inequalities and hindering progress towards a more just and equitable society.
