Webinars: New Data Tools Help Bring Understanding and Transparency to the Credential Marketplace

July 16, 2018

Still time to register for July 18 event

ACE is teaming up with Credential Engine to bring you a free two-part webinar series in July focusing on transparency and understanding the credentials landscape.

Badges, licenses, degrees, apprenticeships, and more – the numbers and types of credentials are piling up and it can be confusing to find, manage, understand, and compare them all. This latest webinar series will help institutions find solutions to these challenges. You can sign up for one or both of the webinars by clicking here.

The webinars will not only explore new trends in the credential landscape, but speakers will also provide practical instruction and share their own experiences with Credential Engine – an organization creating transparency through technology with a web-based registry that uses a common language to collect, maintain, and connect up-to-date information on credentials in the marketplace. 

The first webinar on July 18 will provide an overview of the current credential arena and explain how participants can engage with Credential Engine to improve their organizations’ ability to demonstrate value and return on investment to students and employers. Speaker Rodney Parks, registrar and assistant to the provost at Elon University, will join ACE’s Steven Taylor, director of the Center for Education Attainment and Innovation​, and Scott Cheney, executive director of Credential Engine on the panel. Elon University was one of the first institutions to upload all their credentials into the Registry. 

During the second webinar on July 25, technical experts will demonstrate how to upload credentials to the Credential Engine website. Clark University Assistant Dean Mary Piecewicz, along with Jeanne Kitchens, associate director of the Southern Illinois University Center for Workforce Development, will walk participants through a user-friendly process that allows campuses to organize credential information and import data efficiently. 

“Clark’s School of Professional Studies decided to participate in the Credential Engine because of its core mission of transparency around credentials – from certificates to Master’s degrees.  It is an innovative tool and customer-centric,” said Piecewicz.

During these webinars, you will learn:

  • The value of transparent credential data
  • How you can make your credentials more transparent
  • How Credential Engine can improve your campus’s ability to demonstrate value and ROI to students and employers
  • How Credential Engine’s tools will help you stay abreast of credential trends
  • What Credential Engine can do to help ensure your programs and graduates are prepared for the future of work.
