Webinar: These Aren't Your Parent's Microcredentials

Register Here

Microcredentials present opportunities for learners that previously didn’t exist. Integrating them into your programs is especially important for nontraditional students and underrepresented populations to create a more equitable and accessible education and employment ecosystem.

Participating members of 1EdTech's TrustEd Microcredential Coalition will discuss how they define equity in their digital credentials, show examples of how their programs impact learners, and help them understand how their achievements and skills apply beyond formal education.

We'll also delve into the latest updates to the TrustEd Microcredential Framework, which now includes a more detailed breakdown of the levels of metadata expectations. Our panelists will provide insights on how they are implementing it to categorize credentials in their respective organizations, giving (l)earners a practical understanding of its value. 

Speakers:

  • Heather Carle, Senior Product Manager, Territorium

  • Rob Coyle, Digital Credentials Program Manager, 1EdTech

  • Rita Fennelly-Atkinson, Senior Director of Credentials, Digital Promise

  • Heather Luchte, Chief Performance and Accountability Officer, Idaho Division of Career Technical Education

  • Collin Sullivan, Coordinator of Digital Credentialing, University of Maryland, Baltimore County

 


1EdTech's TrustEd Microcredential Coalition is providing much-needed clarity on what it means to be a trusted and quality microcredential. This webinar is the second in a series led by this group.
