The Future of Higher Education Credentials

The Center for Research on College-Workforce Transitions (CCWT) presents this lecture by Dr. Sean Gallagher.
Tuesday, October 24, 2017
11:30 a.m. - 1 p.m.
259 Educational Sciences building
Sean Gallagher and David Schejbal will deliver a presentation titled, "The Future of Higher Education Credentials: A Critical Look at Degrees, Badges and Certificates in the 21st Century."

At a time of heightened attention to how universities and colleges are preparing young people for the working world, questions about the meaning and value of university credentials –- especially bachelor’s degrees -- have become especially prominent. With the rise of alternative credentials such as badges and certificates, Dr. Sean Gallagher will provide an overview of this fast-changing terrain, providing much-needed context, details, and insights. Dr. David Schejbal, Dean of Continuing Education, Outreach and E-Learning at UW-Extension will provide closing remarks on the topic based on his extensive experience with online and competency-based education, and with the UW Flexible Option program.  

Free lunch and beverages provided while they last.
