Presenters and topics
|Professor Patsie Polly, UNSW
Patsie is a UNSW Scientia Education Fellow and Professor in Pathology, within the School of Medical Sciences, Faculty of Medicine, UNSW Sydney. Recognised nationally and internationally as a medical research scientist, leading teacher and innovative education researcher, she has infused her extensive medical research experience into the classroom by strategically integrating adaptive lessons, ePortfolio pedagogy and collaborative communities of practice to allow her students to learn these career-relevant skills. Patsie has expertise in authentic assessment, course and program-wide ePortfolio implementation/use within science-based degree programs at UNSW Sydney to facilitate student reflective practice and professional skills development. Patsie is recognised internationally as a scholar with invitations to chair the AAEEBL ePortfolio research special interest group (SIG) and be an AAEEBL Board member. As a Scientia Education Fellow, she leads BadgeCop, a community of practice focused on microcredentialing at UNSW.
Microcredentialing for Recognition of Professional Skills
This webinar will focus on the concept of making professional skills development explicit as part of coursework at UNSW and how microcredentialing can be used to recognise these skills. I will be presenting the implementation of a microcredentialing framework and related activities that are part of a scientia education initiative that I am presently leading at UNSW.

Disruption – micro-credentialing is on the horizon
A new challenge is on the horizon for the education sector. The AQF is currently under review and the sector ss rapidly trying to adapt to the changing needs of industry. Digital/Micro-credentialing and badges may be the answer. In this webinar session we will take a look at what is currently happening around the sector, discuss what the future workforce will look like and the types of learners that education providers will need to produce, what this all means to our current curricula and how ePortfolios could be a perfect tool to help facilitate the credentialing and badging process.
