A significant consensus has emerged amongst the hyper niche community of micro-certification and badging experts and the broader community of labour market information professionals about the true problem with skills gaps. While in a limited number of fields there is truly a mismatch between the supply and demand of labour, in most cases teachers, learners and employers do a poor job of communicating and recognizing skills. This presentation will help career developers train, match and place their clients more effectively by understanding badging and micro-credentialing and how to close skills gaps effectively.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Understand leading practices in online learning
  • Understand leading practices in online job matching
  • Understand leading practices in recognition
