The Registrar’s Role in Alternative Credentials: We Can Say What, We Can Say Why, We Can Say How

Almost every higher education institution is issuing or developing alternative credentials. Even if you aren’t aware, it is likely happening in more than one area on your campus. As a registrar, you are pivotal in embracing and facilitating these credentials to enhance student pathways and institutional relevance through trusted and verifiable learner records. In this session, you will explore their purpose, benefits, and implementation strategies for you and your institution.
