The MicroHE partnership set out to conduct a future-foresight exercise that utilises a raft of forecasting techniques, including modified DELPHI methodology, future wheels, scenario building and trend analysis, to map the likely impacts of micro-credentials on Higher Education Institutions, the sector and the wider society as a whole.

Along the implementation we intend to act as a laboratory where different policy actions may be tested in theory, with the aim of identifying effective levers to move the field towards desirable futures.
