Learning innovation in the digital age

SHP

The Consortium for Advancing Adult Learning & Development (CAALD) recently held their second annual conference to discuss what is and isn’t being done to bring innovation to the world of learning.

From this conference, there were a few discussions of projects that are shining examples of what it will take to keep up in an ever-changing world. They’re worth calling out here as inspiration and case studies for what can—and should—be done in schools and offices to develop a workforce on par with advancements in technology.

  • MIT’s MicroMasters program, which partners with the free online course provider edX, provides a four- to five-course module that builds skills competency specific to, and endorsed by, a job opening from a certain corporation. This is a great example of industry and the academy working together to fill a mutual need.
  • Microsoft’s employee badging program, which awards digital “badges” as a form of micro-credentialing to signify that the bearer has completed coursework and training on a specific topic. Micro-credentialing and digital badging, like this Microsoft program, allows learning to take place at any time, and any pace or place.
