Delivery Format: Presentation/Panel Session
Ten years after digital badges were introduced to the higher education ecosystem, micro-credentialing has become widely embraced by learners, employers, and colleges and universities. Now is the time to take stock of what has been overcome and accomplished, what the current state of micro-credentialing is, and to speculate about the future impact of micro-credentialing on higher education. Join us for a conversation about how micro-credentialing may transform higher education.
