Introduction to Micro-Credentials
7. T Shaped Graduate
The concept of "t- shaped graduates" is discussed frequently in relation to micro-credentials. It is best explained by a picture:
The depth of learning might be an advanced degree in engineering, for example, and the cross domain skills might be things like project management, analysis or inter personal skills.
This connects to micro-credentials because skills and attitudes could be obtained via a smaller micro-certification which is independent of the graduate's main knowledge area.
