  7. 7. Position paper EMC-LM stakeholder messages The positionpaper reflects the state of the art of MOOCs and online learningin each of the stakeholder organizations. It is completed by a message of the respective stakeholders to the conventionon their role regarding the future development of MOOCs and digital learning opportunitiesfor the labour market.
  8. 8. Message MOOC Platforms MOOC platforms and universities collaborate with private and public labour market organisations: sectors, enterprises, ministries and public agencies. They deliver and co-create with these organisations MOOCs and MOOCs pathways for employment and innovation which after assessment are awarded with CMF microcredential . These are stackable to wider certified programmes and academic degrees. Due to the crisis, more and more people have to change from a particular sector to another branch or business. Microcredentials can facilitate this by retraining people. They are able to deliver comprehensive services for the organisation of high quality continuous professional development of their workforce in sectors, companies and public services, reducing the cost by flexibility and scalability. This can include a specific training platform for a company or a sector (private or public), eg a dedicated company space, a white label platform or other specifc arrangements.
  9. 9. Message Public employment agencies In EU countries, public employment services (PES) are the authoritiesthatconnect jobseekers with employers. Althoughstructureddifferently in each country, all PES help match supply and demand on the labour market throughinformation, placement and active support servicesat local, nationaland European level. Public employment agenciesorganisea network ofregional and sub-regional competence and training centers for employment, innovation andcareer guidance. They host as welle-learning centers where learners can find courses at all levels. In many cases, theycooperate with the private sector. So far, public employment services have onlya limited experience with MOOCs. However, MOOCs are attractive to them because of their quality, flexibility, scalability and cost. For the targetgroupsof PES, it is important that MOOCs have a modular structure consistingof small learning unitsto be affordable for learners at work. Learners atwork need sometimes bite-sized pieces of learning. Also, awarding microcredentials is important, althoughnotall learners requesta qualification. MOOCs might fasten learning in particular areasor sectors, whichis really needed, eg regarding digitalization. In COVID-times, rapid responseshave to be given, for example in teacher trainingand healthcare/nursing. MOOCs are also useful for training transversal 21st century skills. (creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, communication, information literacy, adaptability, leadership, social skills andproductivity. )
  10. 10. From the point of view of public employmentservices, there is a need for a comprehensive approach to blended and onlinelearning opportunitieswhich includespedagogical, organisational and technological aspects. There are no Europeansolutionsor references for such an approach, which could be implemented atthe nationalor regionallevel. Such an approach would also includethetraining of trainers. Nextto other providers, MOOC platformsand higher education institutions could have a role in this.
  11. 11. Message sectoral organisations and companies Public and private sectors have created sectoral fundsfor educationandtrainingby whichall companies (SMEs and large businesses) can fund training initiatives for their workforce. They serve a large variety of learners fromthe lowly qualified to the highly qualified. Companies are not yet familiar with digital training. Therefore, a multiple approach is needed combining digital and face to face learning. Some sectors develop digital learning platforms for enterprises integrating all learning initiatives of the sector. In some countries, also the public sector is cooperating with MOOC platforms, for example for the in-service training of teachers or for training civilservants in theiradministration, reaching out to massive numbersof learners. Next to a general platformwithfree courses, MOOC platformsprovide aswell specific company spaces, white label platforms or voucher systems for individual private companies. By doing this, theycreate a new learning environment facilitatingthe uptake of learning pathwaysby employees. They can selectMOOCs pathways for their company at a reduced cost which can be awarded by CMF microcredentials. Guiding learners and offering structured learning pathways awarded with (micro)credentials will support the motivation of learners and avoid drop-out. Social learning is also important to supportmotivationand for constructing knowledge.
  12. 12. Message of Universities Universitiesare rethinking policiesand strategiesfor higher education for continuing education and professional development for which onlinesolutionsare needed to Increase accessibility flexibility and scalability. Thisrespondsto the needs for continuing education and professionaldevelopmentin society. In the framework of these new developments, microcredentialswill stimulatethe modularization of continuing educationand willmake this better accessiblefor learners. Microcredentialswill be stackableto wider shortlearning and degree programs. In some universities, also academic master programswillbe organized in a modular way offering academic microcredentialswith a professionalorientation for alumnialready atwork. In this process, universitiesincreasingly collaboratewith companiesand sectors for the co- creation under many modalities, eg needs analysis, offering internshipsor theco-creation of content. University alliances(EUI) and other university networkshave started with newinitiatives for continuing education and professional development using onlinelearning opportunitiesand MOOCs. Thisnew developmentwill lead to innovative new educational formatsand pedagogies. Collaboration willalso improve quality and a better coverage of a European-wide market.
  13. 13. Message of governmentsand EU Governmentsare developingstrategic plansfor continuing education and professional development in which both the ministries of education and labour are involved. However, in most European countries this processis goingslowly. Also because of the COVID crisis a sense ofurgency is increasing and governements foresee specific funding for professional developmentand vocational training. Part of thisfunding is comingfromthe European Union’s Recovery Plan. Governments should introduce a dialogue between all stakeholders: universities, sectors and companies, public employmentservices. This dialogue shouldbe extendedto the social partners. All should be aware of the potential of online learning opportunities and MOOCs because of their quality, flexibility and scalability. The European Union is promoting education and training for the labour market by innovation in higher education (HE-Innovate), Smart specialisation, university-business cooperation initiatives, enhancing LM relevance and outcomes of HE.
