The Essential Foundational Blocks to Initiate & Build a Successful Program
Micro-credentials have gained widespread interest throughout higher education; however, confusion remains about how to best implement them. This lack of knowledge regarding effective implementation hinders institutions from capitalizing on a critical opportunity to provide up-skilling to a student’s education. Explore the critical decisions that need to be made to initiate a micro-credentialing strategy, necessary resources for implementation, and the infrastructure needed to maintain, develop and grow a micro-credential initiative on your campus.
Gather your staff and colleagues for this online training with our expert presenter who shares how she developed a process to propose, review, develop, and implement a new micro-credential program at her university.
This online training provides the initial and practical steps needed to implement a micro-credential and digital badge program on your respective campus. Gain insight into the financial investment, human resources, and infrastructure needed to develop and grow a micro-credential initiative.
At the conclusion of this online training experience, you will be able to:
- Identify the critical steps needed to propose, review, develop and implement a micro-credential program on your campus – get practical steps to create, change or implement an alternative credential program, and apply best practices to create your business plan, mapping curriculum and credential engine registry.
- Comprehend the difference between the various types of micro-credentials offered in higher education – make sound decisions on the appropriate options for your institution to ensure your program’s success.
- Understand the critical structure, how to engage your campus and community partners, and develop policies and governance that supports a quality stackable credentials, micro-credentials, and digital badges program – create a program that will increase your institution’s portfolio of degrees and credentials and ensure your students are in a more competitive position to be workforce ready.
- Develop an alternative credential program with clear action steps needed to be successful to drive revenue by increasing enrollment and retention – create equalizing opportunities for diverse students and those seeking to enhance their current skill set to “upskill” for a competitive edge when reentering or joining the workforce.
