1EdTech: Digital Credentials Summit

March 4 @ 8:00 am - March 6 @ 5:00 pm EST

This session at 1EdTech’s Digital Credentials Summit presented the journeys of two related national initiatives, Credential As You Go and the Learn & Work Ecosystem Library, focusing on lessons learned and milestones ahead.

Credential As You Go works with partners to create a nationally recognized incremental credentialing system (cross-disciplinary, non-credit/credit, undergraduate/graduate). This is an equity-focused system that enables individuals to be recognized for what they know/can do as they acquire learning, with the aim to transform the U.S. degree-centric system to an incremental system that recognizes an array of quality credentials to meet mid-21st century workforce needs and open opportunities for learners. The 4-year-old initiative works with 50 institutions including 7 higher education systems.

The affiliated Learn & Work Ecosystem Library is working to make information easier to find, use, and maximize for diverse stakeholders through a web-based library that collects, curates, and coordinates resources to support the learn-and-work ecosystem. Launched in Dec. 2022, the Library contains over 600 articles/artifacts that describe the key components (building blocks) of the learn-and-work ecosystem; 75+ component topics; glossary of 110+ terms; hundreds of initiatives, alliances, and intermediaries that are working to improve the learn-and-work ecosystem; and archive of historical documents and websites.
