Inxignia awarded the Best Position Paper at CSEDU 2024

As the world grows more interconnected, the opportunities for learning mobility—educational experiences that allow learners to study across different geographical, cultural, or conceptual boundaries—have significantly expanded. However, these opportunities often come with the challenge of learning fragmentation and lack of coherence in educational trajectories. Looking at those issues, SOI Asia has been working on a new scheme of micro-credentials to validate online learning within the community named Inxignia.

Rika Ikeda, the first author of an academic paper about Inxignia, delivered a presentation at the 16th International Conference on Computer Supported Education (CSEDU), held on May 2-4 in Angers, France. The work “A Community-Based Support Scheme to Promote Learning Mobility: Practices in Higher Education in Southeast Asia and Japan” was awarded the Best Position Paper of the conference.

Designed to enhance learning mobility within SOI Asia, this platform aims to create a cohesive learning journey for students participating in various short-term and online educational programs such as APIE and EBA. It integrates learning experiences from different contexts into a coherent, continuous pathway, focusing on building a sense of community among learners.

SOI Asia was also represented by another work about the EBA (Evidence-Based Approach) program, which was selected for poster presentation and publication in the proceedings. Leandro Navarro Hundzinski and Fathima Assilmia conduct research on the use of 360º video in fieldwork activities to collect data and back up claims with evidence. Inxignia and EBA are activities under SOI Asia, supported by the APNIC Foundation.
