Connecting Lifelong Skills with Digital Credentials

Co-Executive Directors of the LFC, Heather Haseley, and Dan Munnerley connect lifelong skills with credentials, mapping out a framework that will give learners the agency to demonstrate their competency.

Digital credentials go beyond your typical certification or time-intensive degree that sometimes, don’t capture the true qualifications of a learner. In the new model illustrated by the LFC, a qualified credential issuer determines the required tasks for a smaller-scale, though no less important, achievement. These small units can be combined or “stacked” to provide a picture of an individual’s personal learning journey.
