Certified skills are a valuable form of academic and professional capital. In this edition of the NMC Beyond the Horizon virtual event series, we will explore the use of digital open badges. These portable machine-readable credentials can verify the mastery of competencies demonstrated across the learning experience while connecting learners to new opportunities and workforce demand.

The panelists draw on experience supporting a range of institutions in developing digital credential badge programs that verify achievements in competency-based education degree programs, open online courses, cross-curricular literacies, co- and extra-curricular activities, student affairs, and faculty development — among other areas. This online program considers topics including new ways of thinking about assessing skills as well as how digital credentials can inform new programs and strengthen relationships.
