We have little excuse not to explore and embrace the remarkable possibilities of these short-term training programs.
JFF Chief Strategy and Growth Officer Rusty Greiff recently published an opinion column in eCampus News titled “3 Reasons Microcredentials Are Poised to Go Mainstream.”
In this piece, he argues that the framework created by the nonprofit Education Quality Outcomes Standards (EQOS), which JFF recently acquired, can help employers, workers, and learners determine which of the many certifications, licenses, and other microcredentials issued by short-term training programs have value.
“As organizations like EQOS deepen our comprehension of the true potential of microcredentials,” he writes, “we have little excuse not to explore and embrace the remarkable possibilities of these short-term training programs. In recent years everything we know about learning and work has started to change. Our understanding of credentials must now evolve, too.”
