DXtera member, Credential Engine, would like to invite you to register for the National Science Foundation’s Track B Convergence Accelerator Expo to occur on July 1 from 2:30pm – 6:00pm ET and July 2 from 10:00am – 2:30pm ET. With 41 team “booths” for interactive discussion and short video overviews there will be a lot of exciting ideas coming together around the future of work, human-technology interfaces, artificial intelligence, big data, public-private partnerships, and more.
A key output of the expo will be securing “Expressions of Interest” for specific Phase 2 proposals and this is where your advocacy is urgently needed. Credential Engine, the Indiana Commission for Higher Education, Midwestern Higher Education Compact, and Lumina Foundation need your support for an ambitious Team B7118 phase 2 proposal entitled “Midwest Compact for a Connected Learn-and-Work Ecosystem” (for a preview, watch this 4 minute video). The team takes a regional approach to scaling up linked open data about credentials by building a community of practice amongst state agencies, credential providers, edtech providers, national organizations, and more. We need you to register for the expo, come to team B7118’s booth to learn more, and fill out an expression of interest for our proposal.
