According to the Georgetown Public Policy Institute, higher education providers are producing more graduates than ever before, yet fewer than half of new graduates or employers believe that they are adequately prepared for entry-level positions. Additionally, employers are looking for assessed credentials in non-credit training and professional development achieved by potential employees.
Establishing an educational ecosystem around Open Digital Badges can be an important part of the solution to reduce these market inefficiencies, increase transparency and establish trusted communication between employers, jobseekers and education providers.
Join us for this interactive presentation in which experts researching and exploring this latest trend in higher education dive into the following questions:
What are digital badges and their opportunity for higher education?
What are the findings from the MacArthur/HASTAC pilot grant projects?
How should an effective badging system be designed?
This webinar is sponsored by Pearson and hosted by The Chronicle of Higher Education. All content presented during the event is provided by Pearson, Indiana University and Madison Area Tech College."
