Use CAYG Framework to guide next steps in policy and procedural development at the system. This will include development of systemwide policy to govern incremental credentials (cogent system definition of incremental credentials; taxonomy that identifies “levels” of incremental credentials awarded by UH to as a common framework, providing coherence across the system – with taxonomy to address criteria such as: complexity of the skills/competencies; time spent learn the skill, breadth or range of application; validation by employers or other subject matter experts; whether the learning activities and credit-based, non-credit, co-/extra-curricular, and/or based on experience (credit for prior learning); and authority to create and approve incremental credentials; and a policy that supports learning, innovation, and quality.
Collaboratively work with CAYG, and other members of the cohort, to collectively advance the efforts in transitioning from a degree-centric orientation toward an equitable and innovative approach to incremental credentialing.
