Microcredentials: When a Spark Becomes a Fire

Description: This session explores how a pilot to develop embedded and co-curricular microcredentials for the Bachelor of Multidisciplinary Studies (BMS), a program for adult and contemporary learners, created an opportunity to lead a campus-wide initiative; moving the adult serving program from margin to center at the institution almost overnight. This new initiative engages cross-campus stakeholders, targets multiple (l)earner audiences, and provides the skills-based education and language our (l)earners need and employers want – in short, it creates a new business vertical for the organization. The session shares the importance of strategic internal communications to convey the expertise of professionals in adult and continuing education units, provides an overview of how UNO has been building its microcredentialing strategy, including programs offered thus far, and outlines our next steps in evolving this opportunity to place (l)earners in the center of the evolving higher education enterprise
