Savior or Disruptor?: Non-Degree Credentials & Higher Ed

Despite the proliferation of tech and IT non-degree credentials (NDCs), questions persist about which NDCs work, and for whom. Recent regional efforts to increase uptake of NDCs and measure their value in the hiring market have fallen short in both domains. How can we support colleges and universities leading the way in NDC implementation and evaluation? In this session, leading 2- and 4-year institutions will discuss challenges in tech/IT NDC adoption and impact measurement. We will also highlight promising strategies for student engagement, data collection, and employer partnership.
