Today, academic credentials share limited information about what graduates know and are able to do.  Parchment and Connecting Credentials National Dialogue – an initiative supported by Lumina Foundation – will bring together a cross-section of leaders and practitioners from higher education, philanthropy and technology for the Parchment Summit, a day-long conversation about innovating academic credentials.

The Summit will be held on Wednesday, February 17, 2016 from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. in Washington D.C. and discussions will foster collaboration between technologists and practitioners and between higher education leaders and employers.  A series of keynotes, panels and workshops will include:

  • Keynote Speakers
  • Panel Discussions
    • The Changing Paradigm of Higher Education’s Role in Career Formation
    • The Credential Ecosystem: Making Sense of Badges, Certificates, Diplomas, ePortfolios
    • The New Language of Credentials – Unbundling and Stacking
    • Ensuring Interoperability and Usability
  • Workshops
    • Innovations in the Transcript
    • Credentials as Labor Market Signals
