See what ANSI-affiliate Workcred has been up to recently, including an upcoming, online event focused on non-traditional learning and diverse career paths.
- Access the September 2021 article, “Certification-Degree Pathways: Aligning Undergraduate Curriculum to Industry Credentials and Professions,” authored by Workcred staff and partners representing the Coalition of Urban Serving Universities at the Association of Public and Land-Grant Universities, and the University Professional Continuing Education Association, that examines how a pathway offering learners the ability to earn a certification while earning their degree provides individuals the ability to showcase a broad base of knowledge as well as work-relevant skills.
- Register now for an October 21 online event, “Is it Time to Throw Away Our Resumes?,” Workcred senior director of research Isabel Cardenas-Navia, co-author of a new essay on learning and employment records (LERs), and Issues in Science and Technology editor-in-chief Lisa Margonelli, will visit Zócalo (an Arizona State University Knowledge Enterprise) to talk about reconstructing credentialing around a system that recognizes—and even encourages—non-traditional learning and diverse career paths.
- Dr. Swift’s recent letter, “Contributing to Greater Change, One Conversation at a Time,” highlights how Workcred’s staff has been on the forefront of conferences, roundtables, broadcasts, and penned Op-Eds about how to collectively improve the workforce landscape, support greater diversity, and use credential pathways to enhance education.
