Designing Alternative Pathways to Credentials

Salt Lake City, UT


The WCET Leadership Summits are designed to bring together educational leaders and practitioners from forward-thinking institutions and enterprises that are actively pursuing answers to the big questions in higher education.

On May 7 and 8th, 2014, WCET held a Summit in Salt Lake City where institutional leaders and corporate innovators convened to discuss competency-based education programs, credit for prior learning, badges and other pathways to postsecondary credentials.

The 2014 WCET Leadership Summit brought together higher education leaders and practitioners who are or want to be actively engaged in pragmatic discussions about alternative pathways to credentials.


The 2014 Summit addressed issues of:

  • Measuring competencies
