3 tips for alternative credentialing - Laura Devaney, eCampus News

To create a strategic framework for alternative credntialing Eduventures is recommending that institutions focus on the following three priorities: 1. Define your alternative credentialing options, whether they are certificates, badges, formal statements of accomplishment, or endorsements of some kind. 2. Determine the aim of these credentials. Are they to validate mastery of a particular skill? Do they really only serve as a more structured pathway to degree attainment? Or are they simply to demonstrate commitment to lifelong learning? 3. Articulate ways which alternative credentials can augment traditional degrees or create a viable substitute to degree attainment. When properly positioned to the market, this strategic framework can help define a value proposition that makes these programs a viable option for adult learners. http://www.ecampusnews.com/top-news/alternative-credentialing-report-792/
