|The UK Credit Forum has published its “history of credit” book, a fascinating overview of how and why credit frameworks have evolved in the UK and European education systems over the last few decades.
Written by members of the UKCF including colleagues from NUCCAT and other credit experts, and edited by Paul Bridges (University of Derby) and Mark Flinn (Edge Hill University) the chapters uncover the historical, professional and political positions that academic credit has taken, from the early origins in the USA via Dublin and Bologna to the latest version of an “all-through” credit framework for England. The book contains a number of full colour charts which show how the qualification frameworks articulate with one another. It also includes an extensive explanatory glossary and a flyer with full details, including chapter titles, can be downloaded here
Copies of ‘Making Sense of Credit & Qualification Frameworks’ are now available for just £16.50 including postage and packing (in the UK) and can be purchased using a credit card from the University of Derby online store HERE. Alternatively, cheque and cash purchases can be made through Paul Bridges at email@example.com.
