Watch this one hour webinar with Alec Barron of Competency X, Karen Overklift of Biocom Institute, and Jim Milton of Portfolium to learn how your institution can build learning pathways using competency based digital badges in order to track student progress and connect students to a career.

During the webinar, we will show you how Competency X, Biocom Institute, and San Diego Miramar College worked together to build specific learning pathways that tracked competencies learned inside and out of the classroom in order to connect students to entry level positions at biotechnology based companies.

In this webinar, you will learn how to:

  • Work with employers to define competencies and map out learning pathways required for success in careers
  • Use digital badges to broaden access to post-secondary credit and deeper work based learning
  • Use digital badges to support student progress along pathways
  • Keep students engaged in their own learning pathway
