Next Digital Credentials Roundtable

25 July 2022 | 11:30 AM ET

Recommendations from Registrars on Alternative & Microcredentials

One of the crucial perspectives as you launch and grow your microcredential program is the Office of the Registrar. They are responsible for issuing credentials for your institution and even if you are only considering non-credit microcredentials their expertise will help you build a stronger program. Pragmatically, the organization and launch of these programs should be done with as much care as other academic and learning programs to ensure micro-credentials successfully uphold your institution’s integrity, reputation, and brand. Join us to learn and discuss the considerations and best practices from one of the key stakeholders in these programs. 

Topics include:

  • Why a campus might consider offering micro-credentials
  • Who should be involved in proposing alternative credentials
  • Who are the potential learner populations
  • How micro-credential initiatives might be implemented for long-term success
  • Where micro-credentials and digital badges might be  recorded and referenced
  • When alternative credentials should be awarded to foster their relevance and usefulness to learners


  • Brenda Schumann, Deputy University Registrar and Director of Operations and Compliance, The University of Texas at Austin  
  • Kristi Wold-McCormick, Assistant Vice-Provost and University Registrar,  University of Colorado Boulder 
  • Mark McConahay, Retired, Indiana University Bloomington,  AACRAO Consultant and CLR Coordinator
