Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario

Organization Type

The Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario (HEQCO) is a research partner for the Business + Higher Education Roundtable (BHER). 

HEQCO and BHER are currently working in partnership to conduct research that will improve collective understanding of microcredentials to inform future development and delivery. Microcredentials are credentials tied to short, flexible learning opportunities that are focussed on specific skills or knowledge. BHER and HEQCO will examine the perceived and potential value of microcredentials by engaging employers, post-secondary institutions and prospective students across Canada. The outcome of this work will inform strategic approaches to microcredential development and delivery. If you are an employer or post-secondary institution and would like to participate in the project by completing the survey, email BHER’s Associate, Corporate Development, Victoria Chappell, at @email
