Webinars are free, 30- to 90-minute virtual events. ACE experts, campus leaders, and other voices from within and beyond higher education discuss critical questions and promising practices around a timely topic. Registrants have the opportunity to share their questions during the live event and to access the recording afterward.

Amid economic disruption and tremendous dislocation in education and employment, how can colleges and universities navigate the increasing demands from learners for digital credentials and flexible pathways to improve economic mobility?

Join ACE, Walmart, and additional partners for a moderated discussion on learning and employment records (LERs) as a tool to aid worker-learners in navigating a skills-based education and employment ecosystem. Learn about a collaboration between state systems, community college campuses, and employers to devise a systems-thinking approach that addresses this challenge. The discussion will include an explanation of a self-assessment framework and playbook to use in raising awareness and inspiring change that supports new pathways for learning and employment.
