On Friday, May 10, Jeanne Kitchens, Associate Director for Southern Illinois University Carbondale Center for Workforce Development and Credential Engine’s technology lead, will serve as a featured speaker in a breakout session at the Postsecondary Electronic Standards Council (PESC) Spring 2019 Data Summit, which is PESC’s 20th Annual Convening of Stakeholders.

The summit’s theme is “State of Technology and Standards in Higher Education,” and programming at the conference will address how institutions, policymakers, and technology providers can continue to serve a changing student population.  Scott Cheney, Executive Director of Credential Engine, spoke on the summit’s keynote panel on May 8.

Kitchens will speak as part of a morning breakout session, “APIs are Not Enough!,”  which will focus on how combining the power of Application Programming Interfaces (APIs), with a common schema, and Linked Open Data is a needed game changer for organizing and analyzing post-sec workforce development data.
