Digital Media and Learning CoLab

Working Futures™ has been working with Cybermedia to research, design, develop and deliver high quality engaging digital learning content and authentic assessment experiences that target human and future leadership capabilities.

Web Assessment & Digital Credentials CoLab

Working Futures™ has been working with EVERITAS and WebAssess’ global deployment of MyInnerGenius® with IBM to configure a platform able to assess a person’s capabilities and confirm which future job roles best match their unique profile. The result is an individual or group report on capability, future potential, skills development needs, and a unique insight into each person’s best fit future job or career opportunities. All verified capabilities and assessment evidence are placed into Credly’s Acclaim platform to generate a digital credential and a personal lifelong record.

Micro-credentials and continuing professional development

Traditional structured formal qualifications promote learning that is often more generalised, discipline based, and focused on knowledge transfer. It can be expensive and time-consuming if you only need part of the degree or wish to prioritise to meet immediate needs. 

But qualifications can be separated or built into micro-learning chunks and still be stacked into the formal, macro-qualification. This occurs through micro-credentials that target specific learning or capabilities required in the future workplace. These nano-degrees or micro-credentials offer a more personalised, efficient, and cost effective way to ensure your workforce is keeping its skills relevant and certified. Working Futures™ has been working with:

  • DeakinCo to identify future capabilities required in professional work and to develop a framework Deakin University can use to not only recognise professional capabilities, but to assure credit or enhanced entry into their post-graduate qualifications for those attaining a micro-credential.
  • Credly to gather evidence, verify, and recognise the experience, achievements, formal learning, or certificates achieved by an individual or group.
  • Queensland Tertiary Admissions Centre (QTAC) and Griffith University to identify a better way to verify informal, non-formal, or formal learning in young people and enhance the verification, credentialing, and management of lifelong digital records using blockchain technologies. 

Leadership Capabilities

Identifying and verifying the capabilities leaders need now and in the future is a major challenge for organisations. With technology disruption, radical changes in the mode and form of work, and globalisation, effective leadership is essential. Working Futures™ works with:

  • Centre for Leadership Advantage to promote progressive, sophisticated and rigorous thinking about assessing and developing leaders
  • University of Tasmania undertaking supervision of PhD candidates completing research into leadership capabilities and authentic assessment.

Working Futures™ works with The Williams Institute for Ethics and Management (TWI) to promote professional ethics awareness across the Asia-Pacific region. Our aim is to provide access to research-based self-assessment tools and learning that will build greater capacity for ethical decision making in organisations. The initiative empowers moral judgment, positive action, and personal responsibility by promoting a transformative approach to ethics in professions.
