Description: Are you interested in learning more about new ways to evaluate students' progress and success? This webinar will provide an overview of the Lumina Foundation-funded Connecting Credentials initiative, which focuses on building learning-based credentialing systems that effectively assess both academic achievements and non-academic skills and talents.
We'll discuss Connecting Credentials' current national campaign and their Beta Credentials Framework, a tool for assessing competency. We'll also share about partner initiatives and specific ways members can get involved.
Participants will receive real-time updates on how credentialing is changing and evolving in the US and have opportunities to ask questions about alternative and new forms of credentials and learning.
