Alternative Credentials: Non-Traditional Credential Providers

June 15, 2017
For decades, professional and continuing educators have been providing alternative credentials in the form of certificate programs. More recently, alternative credentials have become a hot topic due to partnerships between higher education and industry, new non-postsecondary providers, and the immediate need to address the skills gap in today’s workforce. Join Holly Zanville, Senior Advisor for Credentialing and Workforce Development at Lumina Foundation, among other speakers, for a discussion of how non-traditional credential providers are shaping the alternative credential movement during the UPCEA Summit for Online Leadership on June 15, 2017 in San Diego, CA.
Additionally, Scott Cheney, Executive Director of Credential Engine, will lead a concurrent session during the summit about Credential Engine: Transparency in the Credentialing Marketplace.
