Abstract

Governments are pushing higher education institutions to accelerate micro-credentials. Information systems (IS) programs have responded to the push for micro-credentials to a varying degree, following different strategies. Our aim is to understand how the IS field has embraced micro-credentials. In this short paper we present our research framework (Pressures and Proximity of Micro-credential offerings in IS Education, PROMISE) based on a review of research published in the senior scholars’ list of premier journals and leading IS conferences. We also summarize some of the initial findings from empirical study in Norway and Poland and point towards future research to further the development of the framework.

Pressure and Proximity: Micro-credentials in Higher IS Education

Governments are pushing higher education institutions to accelerate micro-credentials. Information systems (IS) programs have responded to the push for micro-credentials to a varying degree, following different strategies. Our aim is to understand how the IS field has embraced micro-credentials. In this short paper we present our research framework (Pressures and Proximity of Micro-credential offerings in IS Education, PROMISE) based on a review of research published in the senior scholars’ list of premier journals and leading IS conferences. We also summarize some of the initial findings from empirical study in Norway and Poland and point towards future research to further the development of the framework.
