Bringing Transparency and Credential Literacy to the Marketplace Part I: Getting Started

January 22, 2019

Through an increasing array of credentials – degrees, licenses, badges and apprenticeships – job seekers, students, and workers have more options than ever to help them get ahead, but a vast and complex credential marketplace to navigate. Many professional, continuing, and online (PCO) leaders struggle to differentiate the credentials offered by their institution to those offered by other institutions and alternative education providers. Join us at one or both of these webinars to learn about how Credential Engine uses technology to bring transparency and credential literacy to the marketplace to provide the reliable information needed to make better credentialing decisions and reveal credentialing and labor trends.

You will learn:

  • The value of transparent credential data to your professional, continuing, and online unit and its stakeholders
  • How you can make your credentials more transparent
  • How Credential Engine can improve your campus’ ability to demonstrate value and ROI to students and employers
  • How the Credential Registry and Finder help you stay abreast of credential trends
  • What Credential Engine can do to help ensure your programs and graduates are prepared for the future of work.

Part I: January 22, 2019

2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. (ET)

This webinar provides an overview exploring the current credential landscape and explains how you can improve your organization’s ability to demonstrate value and ROI to students and employers, stay abreast of credential trends, engage with Credential Engine to create credential transparency, and help ensure your programs and graduates are prepared for the future of work.

Dr. Richard Senese, President and Chief Academic Officer for Capella University, and Co-Chair of the UPCEA Policy Committee will share his experiences with Credential Engine. Capella University has worked for over a decade to advance innovations in higher education to better serve adult learners, such as competency-based education and direct assessment offerings. Incorporating these innovations into the broader credentialing ecosystem depends on a common language for credentials and credential-related data. Employers have a difficult time tracking the large and growing credentialing marketplace and adopting a common credentialing “language” is a key step forward. Capella will share lessons from publishing credentials to the Credential Engine Registry with particular advice on project management, data aggregation, and institutional decision making.
