Title: De-Mystifying Micro-Credentialing
Topic: Micro-credentials are small, skills-based programs that are designed to meet the needs of an ever-changing workforce. Micro-credentials result in a digital credential, such as a digital badge, that is embedded with rich information allowing the stakeholder (a potential employer, for example) to see what criteria was met, and how the competencies can be applied.
This workshop provides tools and resources for developing a micro-credentialing strategy that is appropriate for your institution. We will engage in discussions and activities that will prepare you to-
- Communicate the benefits of micro-credentials and digital badges
- Design purposeful micro-credential programs
- Develop a review/approval process
- Create a business model
- Create credit to non-credit pathways
