A new framework for incorporating industry certifications into degree programs?

Do we need a new framework for incorporating industry certifications into degree programs?

Reported by Higher Ed Dive, Workcred has partnered with several higher education associations to develop one. This 6-step framework includes creating a common language around credentialing, aligning curriculum with certification content, and identifying how students can share their credentials with employers.

The takeaway? As more and more four-year colleges are adding short-term certifications into their programs while trying to create better partnerships with local industry, is a shared framework like Workcred’s a great next-step in making sure these cert-credentials are truly win-win for all?

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
