International Council on Badges and Credentials [ICoBC],
Rolf works for LinkedIn at the intersection of government, education and organisational learning. He is also an active member of the International Council on Badges and Credentials [ICoBC] to ensure a systemic view of badges and credentials for individuals, organisations and societies. Rolf also serves as a Council Member to the Union of International Associations and as a Certified Supporter to the Corporate Social Responsibility community of ZiviZ at Stifterverband (W.I.E.).
Prior to joining LinkedIn in 2016, Rolf has worked for Pearson, the largest education company in the world, on secondary, post-secondary and corporate training initiatives across Germany, Austria and Switzerland. From 2011 to 2012, Rolf was tinkering on various visionary projects such as eLearning quality (epprobate), streaming (TEDx etc.), ePortfolios, Immersive Worlds, Networks of Change Structures as well as Coworking and Community Spaces.
The focus of his work from 2007 till 2009 was on the ROI of eLearning programs for larger corporations. This focus changed with his assignment as Executive Manager of the European Foundation for Quality in E-Learning where innovation and technology as an enhancer of personal, organisational and societal development became a central topic. By the time Rolf had obtained his Engineering degree in Media Technology, he had worked on large digital transformation projects, for instance, for the L&D department of L’ORÉAL. He later designed and managed complex eLearning projects mainly for corporate customers.
