Workforce & Acceptance by Employers
This group explores ways to connect badges to jobs, internships, career advancement and other opportunities within the workforce. From considerations of the importance of “soft skills” (aka non-cognitive skills) like leadership to reflections on the value of more traditional “hard skills” like technical competency, this group covers an extremely wide range of the open badges ecosystem. Together we work to find and grow the potential of open badges across academia, industry, government, and society, adding professional capital to the open badges movement.
