Co-Designing Regional Pathways with Micro-credentials


The silos between secondary, postsecondary, and career systems widen equity gaps and opportunities for historically and systematically excluded learners. Digital Promise is co-designing regional industry pathways to recognize learners for their skills across systems. Innovations like micro-credentials and Learning and Employment Records expand ways to document skills and competencies developed throughout learners’ lives. This workshop will share regional examples, processes, protocols, and products for co-designing regional career pathways enabled by MCs and LERs.
