WSU founding member of the national coalition TrustEd Microcrentials

Kim Moore, executive director of the Office for Workforce, Professional and Community Education, has joined other senior leaders from higher education, edtech suppliers and K-12 districts to help realize the full potential of microcredentials to benefit learners, educators and employers.

The resulting framework is designed to set a standard for the information that digital credentials need to contain in terms of transparency with respect to the skills, knowledge, and abilities achieved, as well as the interoperability of the credentials.

“Wichita State University is proud to work towards an articulated, interoperable and sustainable ecosystem, which adheres to a common standards framework, and which will guide issuers on the best ways to maximize the benefits of their badges for learners and employers” Moore said.

The framework is expected to be released at 1EdTech’s Digital Credentials Summit, March 4-6, 2024 in New Orleans, where President Rick Muma is a featured speaker.
