Join us for an insightful webcast tailored for higher education leaders and administrators, focusing on the effective policy and practice of credential initiatives in today’s educational landscape. With a staggering 40.4 million Some College, No Credential adult learners seeking avenues for upskilling and reskilling, institutions face a pressing need to adapt and innovate. Today’s adult learners expect more: they want their educational journey to provide benefits while they are earning their degree, not after the degree is in hand.

This session will explore the strategic integration of microcredentials as a tool to re-engage and support adult learners while simultaneously enhancing institutional revenue streams. Through expert analysis, real-world scenarios, and empirical research, participants will gain invaluable insights into effectively leveraging microcredentials.

Key takeaways include:

  • Explore the shifts and trends in consumer demand from the voice of the student: what do current and prospective adult learners want and why?
  • Analyze the challenges and opportunities within higher education institutions: how do questions of quality and complex governance systems help and hinder the development of microcredentials?
  • Evaluate the role policy plays in shaping the higher education ecosystem to foster microcredential adoption and meet learner demand.

Join us as we delve into the transformative potential of microcredentials in shaping the future of higher education.
