Non-degree credentials are becoming increasingly common, emerging in response to the need for ongoing skills development as part of the rapidly changing economy. This session will discuss a conceptual framework for defining and measuring non-degree credential quality as well as policy and practice. Come and explore how you might integrate non-degree credentials‚ certificates, certifications, licensure, apprenticeship, and badges‚ into traditional degree programs at your institution and award academic credit for these credentials.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Explain how to integrate quality non-degree credentials into traditional degree programs at your institution.
  2. Explain how to develop processes to award academic credit for quality non-degree credentials.
  3. Engage in discussions with stakeholders around non-degree credential quality.
  4. Use your knowledge about non-degree credentials to better advise students on non-degree credentials.
