The rate of change in how people learn and work is accelerating in our technology-driven economy. Micro-credentials and digital badges are starting to fill the gaps in a landscape that spans formal and informal, lifewide learning. This workshop will map the territory for micro-credentials today and provide a roadmap for tomorrow, using authentic examples from across Canada and the globe.

Learning Outcomes:
  • List the benefits of competency-based approaches to workforce development
  • Describe the skills needed for success in 21st-century careers
  • Explain how micro-credentials make skills more portable and learner-centred
