Marianna_Milkis,_ASU_Pocket: Hi I'm new I see a couple of familiar names I'm with the Arizona State University and I work on is your pocket with John quo. ✪
Ian_Davidson: Hey everybody Ian Davidson from Smart resume jodieandandy greeble who's often on these calls I haven't been on this particular call and well over a year so that can back in and just wanted to say hi. ✪
<tallted_//_ted_thibodeau_(he/him)_(openlinksw.com)> (calendar says "open agenda" but it seems to be otherwise ... also, notes about "Join with Google Meet: https://meet.google.com/qxe-vqop-uvz" seem odd as we're in Jitsi-world)
Marianna_Milkis,_ASU_Pocket: Sorry I missed the part about how to hop on the Queue but I did attend. ✪
Marianna_Milkis,_ASU_Pocket: It was good so it was my first time to attend this conference I'm relatively new to the space into the team I've only been working on pocket and in digital credentialing space since September of last year the conference was great I thought there was clearly a mean obviously the organizers talked a lot about the ob3 and still are two formats they presented the updates which to me. ✪
Marianna_Milkis,_ASU_Pocket: me sounded like they are moving in. ✪
Marianna_Milkis,_ASU_Pocket: In a solid Direction and that was a whole lot of conversation I basically felt like there were two parts to the conference one was around the whole pipeline from micro-credentialing and transitioning into employment so whether it's micro credentials in general but whether it's verified credentials or skills based hiring into employers my main out take has been that the only. ✪
Marianna_Milkis,_ASU_Pocket: any instance where. ✪
Marianna_Milkis,_ASU_Pocket: Kinds or digital credential and currently Works successfully and to and leading to employment is if employers co-create or create the programs that are then being credentialed I think that that conversation is kind of a standalone conversation that so basically may or may not be facilitated by digital credentials in in the space out we all are yeah so those are kind of my main outtakes. ✪
Marianna_Milkis,_ASU_Pocket: it's though I saw a lot of. ✪
Marianna_Milkis,_ASU_Pocket: Doing the work and had conversations with many colleges who are starting to transition into some sort of credentialing it currently doesn't go too far past the badging of Milestones within the course or some extracurricular co-curricular activities and then the interesting session was with apparently Arco the Board of Regents governing body Association has issued a guidance to you CL are too. ✪
Marianna_Milkis,_ASU_Pocket: Or migrating transcript into digital form and Tennessee Board of Regents has done made a big progress with they actually did make a move all their transcripts to CLR and then Arkansas also is moving in that direction. ✪
Marianna_Milkis,_ASU_Pocket: This kind of broad Strokes I guess. ✪
<susan_stroud> Mute issues
Dave_McCool_(Muzzy_Lane): Hi I definitely agree with all the things Mariana said I thought it was a good conference we've gone the last few years and significant growth I think in the space and especially University of participation I think was sort of for me bookended by a minus and a plus Sean Gallagher from Northeastern presented their latest research on basically is HR Tech ready for micro credentials and a pretty detailed no came out of that presentation a lot of structural and Technology barriers to. ✪
Dave_McCool_(Muzzy_Lane): Created by companies making it all the way through to the hiring managers and hiring process so highlight a lot of challenges there but on the flipside edl Ed elects University of Dayton and University of Melbourne presented some research they did on sort of the student side and how how Learners feel about my credentials and they show that 76% of Learners feel more confident expressing their skills when they get these micro credentials so even if it's not a formal part of the hiring process they feel like they get sort of a career boost out of just getting the my credential itself. ✪
Dave_McCool_(Muzzy_Lane): so that was a promising sign. ✪
Susan_Stroud: We'll see are they better okay great I think I must have said no somewhere along the line yeah so this is my first experience in the like kind of Ed Tech space moving over from Healthcare and so I found the conference to be a really nice mix of audiences so there was a great deal of Technical and even highly technical conversations there was a lot of Standards conversations a lot of product roadmaps a lot of how the different products. ✪
Susan_Stroud: it's kind of come together think in order to create an. ✪
Susan_Stroud: Sean that I found to be very valuable and then just The Passion of the people to really love all the different groups to try to work together to see what they can do from kind of their angle in order to advance the The Narrative and the capabilities that are being brought to bear especially as we get to the point where we can actually mix them in an end-to-end experience and actually create a full experience so it's really exciting and a lot of really great opportunity to network and meet people in these sessions as well sir. ✪
Susan_Stroud: And Carrie if I can just you know add one more thing one of the I went to eat Denver or E th Denver right after that and it was really interesting to see as like a selling point some of the newer blockchain companies advertising as new features and new feature releases that they were incorporating verify credentials and so that kind of cross industry I guess excitement you know coming from like highly folks involved in like blockchain identity to. ✪
Susan_Stroud: Keen eyes and the need to you know. ✪
Susan_Stroud: Standards and incorporate some of the content that's coming through these types of working groups was really exciting to see that as a selling point is something that they wanted to announce. ✪
Susan_Stroud: Cracked and have incorporated into like the latest version of Angus polygon it's doing like cross chain identity management and just get them up there actually there's three or four sessions that I went to really pushing verify credentials on blockchain so it was really nice to see that continuity of what work a lot of the folks on this call are doing either to drive or to advance and then seeing that cross into the Block Chain space as like selling points. ✪
Naomi: Are there yes I did pop up for just a second and I wanted to follow on some of the initial thoughts raised and also that David raised as well you know my main takeaway from the event is still how much opportunity we have and also work we have to do to connect the pockets of work that have really gotten going where I kind of got the sense that there's a lot of pockets of innovation and really. ✪
<pl/t3_asu> It might be useful to ask Colin Reynolds to speak about EthDenver meeting at some point, as he was one of the organizers of that event.
Naomi: Application of use cases and and follow through end-to-end but that there are few roadways really connecting that work and that goes back to the broad sense of whether employers are ready to receive you know credentials outside of the examples that they themselves are directly involved with and help structure and so you know my big takeaway is for us to really think as a community on how to better Forge the connections. ✪
Naomi: And really work together to have not just islands of digital credentials in use but really to empower the individuals to be able to you know travel the world with them. ✪
Topic: RANDA - Marty Reed
<kerri_lemoie> No napping! :)
<pl/t3_asu> link to slides?
PL/T3_ASU: Yes thank you can you hear me okay great thanks Marty that was a really helpful presentation summarizing some really terrific work you and your colleagues have been doing and I was intrigued by the discussion at the end about the adoption barriers and you made the observation of sort of looking at the adoption from those concerned about giving away control of their data. ✪
PL/T3_ASU: Mentioning that it was looking at it from the inside out and and adding less friction for people to enter the system as a as a sort of counterbalance to the concerns that the loss of potential giving away of ownership or control of the data might be concerned considered as threatening to that group can you elaborate a little bit more on that in terms of what do you mean by bringing more people into the system and and and how. ✪
PL/T3_ASU: Concern over an agency that they seem to be concerned about losing. ✪
PL/T3_ASU: Thank you Marty that's helpful I'm just a curious quick follow-up do you think this is unique in the sense that there is such a high demand at the moment given the the difficulty in attracting candidates and teacher education as well as many other jobs that it's a somewhat inopportune time in a number of domains teacher education being one of them for that argument to be made. ✪
<pl/t3_asu> LOL - meeting with Andrew tomorrow!
PL/T3_ASU: Ironically I'm meeting with Andrew tomorrow and that's all they're all about it so thank you for the heads up so I can be more intelligent when the conversation starts great job great job Marty. ✪
<pl/t3_asu> VP's persisting is unlikely in the VCDM v2. The VPs value is in the negotiated stacking of a set of VCs to be transported to an end point.
PL/T3_ASU: Yeah I got your I just asking I guess for some Recollections about the complexity of the alignments that clrs can see lrv tutors can contain and anything that that in your experience working with them is there anything that would help I mean it seems like one of those Arcane spaces that. ✪
PL/T3_ASU: Don't understand themselves and and since they are alignments often that are representing rulesets about what combinations of course is for a major for example are necessary and some of it is in terms of precedents and sequence and some of it is in terms of other other areas is there some anything from your extensive work in this space that might help people when they interpret or try to interpret. ✪
