Our regular Town Halls create space to collaboratively design, discuss and discover what’s next in learning. Our time together will help to build collective momentum and understanding, make us more aware of what the field needs next, and it better enables us to empower every learner to thrive and act with purpose.

Each month, Getting Smart hosts a town hall on a selected topic. During this collaborative time, attendees have the opportunity to learn, connect and ask questions about the future of learning. 

Do you have a topic you’d love to see covered? Email Mason or tweet us @Getting_Smart using the hashtag #GSTownHall.

Badging and credentialing town hall

Badging & Credentialing: How Students Show What They Know

December 1st, 2022 | 10 a.m. PT

The upcoming Getting Smart Town Hall will take a look at a number of organizations and technologies that enable powerful badging and credentialing opportunities to help students share their stories, their learning and their priorities.

Credentialing is the new way to communicate capabilities and provides more reliable and precise capability signaling than courses and grades. We’ll explore the secondary and postsecondary learning and employment ecosystems where credentialing is emerging, how it complements skills-based hiring, and the implications for learner records.
