Webinar: Alternative, Stackable, and Microcredentials: Where are we headed?
Alternative, Stackable, and Microcredentials: Where are we headed?
Wednesday, November 9, 2016 (Times listed are Eastern Standard Time; GMT-5)
|Sponsored by Georgia Tech Professional Education (GTPE), International Association for Continuing Engineering Education (IACEE) and EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI)|
Attend this event to hear from leading international experts on alternative credentials, microcredentials, and badging. They will discuss current efforts, successful examples, and emerging frameworks for the creation, interoperability, and sustainability of these innovations. The conversation will also address science and engineering since the rapid changes in these fields require professionals to quickly and continually gain new competencies, while receiving the appropriate and acceptable evidence that these competencies are attained. The question is, with the possible proliferation of alternatives to the commonly acknowledged “college degree,” how do we create a shared understanding, a common currency that we, higher education institutions and employers alike, will recognize and accept? Join us for this webinar to the explore potential answers to this question.
