Stackable credentials pave the way forward for adult learners, as they create space for as many educational on- and off-ramps as the learner needs. The destination can be a microcredential, a master’s degree — or anything in between. Join CAEL and Guild Education for a webinar where we go beyond the 'why' and delve into some ways that colleges and universities  are using stackable credentials to open doors to career mobility. Featuring leaders from academic institutions who are already practicing effective stackability, join us to hear examples of what these stackable pathways  look like in practice, and how your institution may be able to implement them to create opportunities for more working adult learners.
