Three Strategies: A Conversation on Digital Credentials in Higher Ed

Our expert panel discusses how their institutions are strategically designing a digital credentials ecosystem to meet their learner needs and institutional goals. Topics include:

  • How to help students articulate and share their learned skills
  • How to start and scale your programs
  • How to reduce the barriers to degree completion

The highlighted institutions are purposefully identifying learning outcomes from their academic programs and issuing aligned digital credentials. These digital credentials can be issued as microcredentials, digital badges, or comprehensive learner records. Join us to learn about their progress and hear about their future plans!
