The traditional resume is on its way out, and in its place digital badges are becoming a useful tool for job seekers to better showcase their skills and competencies. In this video I introduce my upcoming InnovaTED presentation at the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative Annual Meeting, where I will be discussing digital badges as a new currency for professional credentials and how they can play a role in helping match employers to college graduates with the right skills for the job. Thanks for watching!

Director of Integration Strategy Deborah Everhart will give an InnovaTED talk at the EDUCAUSE Annual Meeting called “Badges: New Currency for Professional Credentials.” The session is from 9:45-10:30 a.m. on February 5 in Oak Alley Meeting Room.

    This is a good idea, if the supply/demand, and implied endorsement of the badge is broadly acceptable to hirers. Is this something that requires additional education before hitting critical mass? What about different job seeker cohorts, such as boomers reentering the workforce?

    I’d love to know more.
