New SharePoint site provides supports and resources for creating non-credit micro-credentials

A new SharePoint site has been created to provide support and resources to Faculties, departments, faculty members, librarians and staff who are interested in or are already developing non-credit micro-credential learning opportunities.

The first phase of resources has been curated to a centralized Brock Micro-credential Resource Site, which contains documentation to assist with the development of non-credit micro-credentials. Resources include frequently asked questions; Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities guidelines; and forms to apply for the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) eligibility. Additional information on supports available through the Office of the Vice-Provost and Associate Vice-President, Academic is also outlined.

OSAP eligibility for non-credit micro-credentials is growing across the province, with approximately 3,000 options currently available. The next round of submissions for OSAP eligibility are due early in the new year. The Professional and Continuing Studies (PCS) team can assist with the application process and completion of forms prior to submission to the Office of the Vice-Provost and Associate Vice-President, Academic.

Anyone interested in learning more is invited contact PCS at no later than Tuesday, Dec. 13 to ensure timelines are met. Feedback on the new SharePoint site and the resources it contains can also be sent to
