Podcast: The Key with Inside Higher Ed: A Better ‘Transcript’ for Learners and Employers
Posted by Inside Higher Ed on June 29, 2021
This week’s episode of The Key podcast examines an effort to better capture and describe the range of knowledge, skills and experience that learners gain during their time in college.
What skills, knowledge and abilities do students develop as they navigate through college? How do students themselves know, and how do institutions arm their graduates to show prospective employers what they know and can do?
On this week’s episode (The Key’s 50th), we explore an effort to iterate beyond the academic transcript, which has historically been the main tool available to students, institutions and employers alike to sum up what’s gained during the college experience. And a not very effective one at that.
