Introducing the 21st Century Skills Badging Challenge

We’re pleased to announce the kick-off of our cohort-style design challenge with 7 partner universities to address the question:

 

How might we capture learning beyond the traditional transcript in ways that are meaningful to employers?

As part of our mission to improve the school-to-work pipeline, this 9 month design challenge aims to address the gaps that exist between the skills that today’s employers expect of recent college graduates, and the way those skills are or aren’t represented on a traditional college transcript.

 

To learn more about the challenge, and the partners involved, see “If B.A.’s Can’t Lead Graduates to Jobs, Can Badges Do the Trick?” from The Chronicle of Higher Education, March 2, 2015 (subscription required).
