Learning to Bridge Skills Gaps: Developing Awareness and Making Use of Digital Certificates
Understanding what you are good at and then representing this to others can be a difficult process. Even more challenging is having an awareness of your skills gaps as part of your lifelong learning. In this session we will explore LinkedIn's ecosystem in how it is supporting many organisations in upskilling their staff and students via in-demand and on-demand content with digital certificates that can help them stand out from the crowd. This can especially be important for students who are trying to become more visible as they enter a competitive job market.
Garnet Berry works at LinkedIn, with a focus on supporting organisations upskill their staff and students.
Having a Bachelor's Degree in Education, Garnet spent the early part of his career teaching IT and Business Studies within secondary education. As he began to use technology in the classroom, he saw first-hand the impact this was having on his teaching and learning.
Garnet then transitioned to working with some well-known organisation within Edtech such as Pearson and Moodle HQ. Now with the power of LinkedIn's Economic Graph insights along with his teaching experience he has acquired a unique perspective of the digital learning ecosystem.
