Director, Adult Learning Initiatives
Too many adults are undereducated and underemployed and seek learning opportunities to set themselves up for a more productive future. We believe technology can serve to improve opportunities and outcomes for adult learners and we believe that there needs to be additional investment and innovation to improve their opportunities to learn. The Director of Adult Learning Initiatives will be responsible for spurring innovation in the adult learning field by telling compelling stories and incenting further investment in strategies and technologies that will improve opportunity to learn.
Partnership Manager for Educator Professional Learning
The Educator Micro-credentials Initiative aims to celebrate and spotlight educators as they develop and share their competencies to best support student learning. The micro-credential system is a platform for educators to earn non-traditional credentials that can be used to display competencies for personal development and career advancement. Please see digitalpromise.org/microcredentials for more information.
The Partnership Manager will drive the implementation of the micro-credentials initiative’s partnership development plans. This will include supporting the development of high-quality micro-credential content by managing the content partner intake process, supporting the creation of relevant agreements, contracts, and grants, and working closely with partners to create micro-credentials. Additionally, the Partnership Manager will support work with recognizer partners such as schools and districts to integrate micro-credentials into professional development structures. This is an exciting opportunity to join at the ground level of an emerging trend and work within a nimble, fast, and entrepreneurial enterprise.
