Ticket to a high-quality, flexible learning journey: QAA publishes podcast on academic credit

Date: May 6 - 2022

A podcast discussing the role that academic credit can play in facilitating high-quality, flexible learning journeys is now available as part of QAA’s 25th Anniversary series. QAA’s 25th Anniversary series is delivered in our capacity as a membership organisation.

The discussion focuses on the many roles that credit plays within the higher education system, and also touches on policy developments in England concerning the Lifelong Loan Entitlement, the importance of recognition of prior learning as a central pillar of lifelong learning, and how credit can transfer across national and international borders.

The podcast is hosted by Professor Sue Rigby, Vice-Chancellor of Bath Spa University and QAA Board Member, who previously chaired the review of the Credit Framework for England. Sue is joined on the panel by Professor Ruth Whittaker, Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Education and Students) at the University of Brighton, who is currently leading the review of the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework, and Professor Clare Milsom, Interim Academic Registrar and Chief Operating Officer at Liverpool John Moores University, who was a member of the Credit Framework for England Advisory Group. They are also joined by Dr Ailsa Crum, QAA’s Director of Membership, Quality Enhancement and Standards.

Throughout this year, QAA is holding a series of conversations with higher education experts from across the UK and around the world. These conversations will be a wide-ranging exploration of quality, in different contexts and from a range of perspectives.

You can listen to the podcast on our YouTube channel.
