Couldn’t agree more, Norah, these are multi-sectoral issues that require multi-sectoral responses!

There is a big shift needed to approach learning as recursive, not a straight line. Our system reinforces the straight line version at almost every turn.
Pat Maher
01:36:02
@Lena - Canada’s (or even Ontario’s) system reinforces that. Not the situation everywhere; nested qualifications, prior learning experience; Co-op or nothing (old model of WIL - I know this is changing).
Lena Patterson
01:38:26
@Pat - absolutely, there are many great models out there that rethink the linear path, including here in Ontario - snapping up those examples of different approaches and making them visible at the systemic level is half the battle. Share some here if you have them!

Here’s the news Val was referring to: Conestoga launches Student Experiential Record: https://educationnewscanada.com/article/education/category/education/95/859604/conestoga-launches-student-experiential-record.html

NZ has some great levels/steps (how finishing a cert can fit with a Masters, PLA supports). I think their QA framework is super comprehensive - from like grade 10 and above - all encompassing, all disciplines, etc.
Pat Maher
01:43:52
The way BC’s credentials overlay is a great Canadian example - and how articulation relates to that (or how WIL can articulate).
Lena Patterson
01:44:39
Thanks Pat, those are great examples

Thank you for what I know is only part of a bigger discussion. The pandemic has thrown into very sharp relief a lot of the inequities that our students have and are facing. We've been having a lot of discussions related to assumptions about where and how students are working, particularly when the pandemic and being at home means school and/or work can't be their primary focus. I appreciated the points about building relationships and being flexible - that attitudinal change and focus is exceedingly important. Happy to hear more is being done related to access to high speed internet - very key if we want to continue this 'way of working'.

Ontario has a common micro-credential framework already in use across 36 different current opportunities: https://www.ecampusontario.ca/wp-content/uploads/2020/02/2020-02-03-microcertifications-en.pdf

Not WIL specific, but a good starting point
