Event description

Description

Summit on the Credentialing Economy

Join us and an expert line up to explore the evolving world of credentialing, including the value of credentials in seeking employment; technology tools to create and distribute credentials and emerging models and frameworks to ensure quality. The Summit will convene leaders, influencers and innovators to drive transparency and improvement in education, credentialing, assessment and hiring best practices.




Themes/Topics of Discussion


Supply and Demand

Trust and Verify: Aligning Supply and Demand

The stakes for employers have never been higher. How do employers make sense of credentials in order to manage talent and training, prepare for industry developments, and hire quickly and fairly? What do employers wish educators knew about creating credentials for industries? As industry associations, what tools and best practices should be used to make sure certificate/licensure and other credential holders have the competencies to serve industry needs? Discuss tools, HR practices, assessments that can verify and demonstrate trust for credentials for all participants in the market: employers, industries, educators and applicants/students.


Disruption

Innovation/Disruption: Empowering Learners and Disrupting the Status Quo

Technology and its impact on education and the workforce. Tech is blurring the boundaries between teaching, training and learning and AR, VR, AI, Blockchain are leading the way. We are on the cutting edge of how disruptive tech is changing the way knowledge and skills and acquired, validated and used in the labor market. How is disruptive tech affecting policy, higher education structures, and workforce development for the talent pipelines of the future?


Leveraging Skills

Credentials as Currency: The New Language in the Labor Market

The shift toward granularity in knowledge assessment. What underlies the credential? Skills? Competencies? Could stackable credentials, accelerated degrees, and prior learning assessment contribute to more clear assessments of employability? How could other micro-assessment movements, driven in part by the political/educational/economic climate in this country - nagging unemployment, skills mismatches, the high cost of education, etc. change how we hire, promote and educate? How will teaching have to change to support new credentials and industries? Will growing acceptance of expanded toolsets (CBE, OER, microlearning, etc.) lead to more confusion or more clarity about what a student/applicant can do?



Real Work*. Not Just Talk.

Come prepared to solve real problems. Our general sessions will dive deeply into the issues facing clarifying credentials, demonstrating competencies, filling skill gaps and hiring for the future. You come prepared to develop solutions that will drive education, hiring, and workforce planning for the next few decades.


*We plan to have a bit of fun too!
