    Onboarding and Education Design Principles for Learning and Employment Records
    (Digital Promise, 2023-09) Malliron Hodge; Zohal Shah; Marika Patterson; Christina Luke Luna, Ph.D.
    This report represents another installment in our Learning and Employment Records (LERs) series, where we explored the unique challenges and opportunities that learners encounter when familiarizing themselves with LER technology. As the paradigm shifts towards skills-based hiring and career advancement gains momentum, it becomes imperative for technologies like LERs to provide a transparent, user-friendly, and accessible onboarding experience. Digital Promise collaborated closely with historically and systematically excluded (HSE) adult learners and workers, including those facing economic hardship and multilingual learners, to establish a set of onboarding design principles. These principles are designed to ensure that LERs are crafted in ways that actively engage a diverse range of users.

    Principios de Aprendizaje de la Transición de Diseño para los Expedientes de Aprendizaje y Empleo: Co-diseño para la Equidad
    (Digital Promise, 2023-07) Kelly Page; Alexandra Merritt Johnson; Kristen Franklin; Bria Carter; Marilys Galindo; Teresa Solorzano; Sangyeon Lee; Zohal Shah
    Las tecnologías emergentes, como los registros de aprendizaje y empleo (LER), se han identificado como una solución prometedora para que los alumnos y trabajadores histórica y sistemáticamente excluidos (HSE) compartan y accedan a sus datos de aprendizaje y competencias a partir de sus itinerarios de aprendizaje y transiciones individuales. Sin embargo, los itinerarios de aprendizaje rara vez son lineales; la forma en que los alumnos y los trabajadores pueden demostrar y obtener reconocimiento por sus habilidades y competencias puede evolucionar con el tiempo. Además, las barreras sistémicas y las desigualdades arraigadas en los itinerarios de aprendizaje de las comunidades de HSE afectan de manera desproporcionada a su capacidad para acceder y persistir en el ecosistema educativo y laboral. Es fundamental que los LER se diseñen de forma accesible y equitativa para las comunidades de HSE a fin de mitigar las desigualdades sistémicas y estructurales en el ecosistema educativo y laboral. Con el generoso apoyo de la Fundación Bill y Melinda Gates, Digital Promise colaboró con alumnos adultos y trabajadores de la ESS para establecer un conjunto de principios de diseño que sirvieran de base para el desarrollo de tecnologías de REA para su uso a lo largo de la trayectoria profesional y de aprendizaje de las personas, incluidas sus transiciones de aprendizaje. Mediante entrevistas individuales y talleres de grupo con alumnos adultos y trabajadores de la HSE, se han identificado los principios de diseño clave para influir en la infraestructura de datos LER desde la educación hasta la fuerza laboral.

    Learning Transition Design Principles for Learning and Employment Records: Co-designing for Equity
    (Digital Promise, 2023-07) Kelly Page; Alexandra Merritt Johnson; Kristen Franklin; Bria Carter; Marilys Galindo; Teresa Solorzano; Sangyeon Lee; Zohal Shah
    Emerging technologies such as learning, and employment records (LER) have been identified as a promising solution for historically and systematically excluded (HSE) learners and workers to share and access their learning- and skills-data from their individual learning journeys and transitions. However, learning journeys are rarely linear; the way in which learners and workers may demonstrate and get recognized for their skills and competencies may evolve over time. Further, systemic barriers and inequities embedded in the learning journeys of HSE communities, disproportionately impact their ability to enter and persist in the education and workforce ecosystem. It is critical for LERs to be designed as accessible and equitably for HSE communities to mitigate systemic and structural inequities in the education and workforce ecosystem. With the generous support of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Digital Promise collaborated with HSE adult learners and workers, to establish a set of design principles to inform the development of LER technologies for use over an individual’s learning and career journeys, including their learning transitions. Through one-on-one interviews and group workshops with HSE adult learners and workers, fundamental design principles have been identified to influence LER data infrastructure from education to the workforce.
