  8. 8. We can’t repeat the mistakes of the past by expecting the majority world to wear the “suits” of Western accreditation, but there still must be appropriate standards and signals needed.

  10. 10. Dead Capital $9.3 trillion 400 million in India with No Identification Undocumented Alternative Education Trillions of $ of lost value? Why Now? Technology Is Enabling Centralized Record Keeping Needed to Document Alternative Education
  11. 11. Why Now? What’s driving this opportunity? 1. Rise of the global South ◦ Need new educational system and structures designed around the needs of the majority world 2. Increase in bi-vocational pastors globally ◦ Increased importance of government recognition of education credentials in second vocation 3. Growth of accreditation systems for vocational qualifications ◦ Growth in globally transferable priced affordably for the masses in the majority world ◦ 150 countries around the world now have national qualifications frameworks or NQFs 4. Growth of unbundled education and accreditation ◦ Growth of MOOCs, mobile apps and open education ◦ Increased opportunity for combining national education and transnational education into globally recognized credentials ◦ See my Clayton Christensen Institute article (Part 1, Part 2) & accreditation reform bibliography Source: http://www.universityworldnews.com/article.php?story=20170328000916417

  15. 15. Summary of Key Requirements for GC4 Accreditation 1. Requires centralized system for transcript information ◦ Preferred to have a centralized system for all grading & assessments unless controls are in place to standardized quality of assessments ◦ Modules need to be mapped into standards for credit hours 2. Instructors doing grading need to have completed the program they are teaching or have a Bachelor’s or above ◦ In locations without credentialed faculty can use online grading ◦ Need to provide letter validating prior learning for faculty

  21. 21. Policy Recommendations for Majority World Accreditation 1. Revise Faculty Requirements for Accreditation. Only require that faculty have the same level of education that they are teaching (not one level above). “See one. Do one. Teach one.” ◦ ABHE, ICETE 2. Government Recognized Transnational Accreditation. Develop an international network of radically affordable accredited vocational education institutions that can delegate their accreditation to institutions within other countries and top up degree universities. ◦ GC4, TOPIC 3. Majority world pricing models. Provide accreditation pricing on a per student basis with minimal up front cost to accommodate capital-poor institutions. ◦ ABHE, ICETE, GC4, TOPIC 4. Indigenous Leadership Development. Develop radically affordable accredited programs to train majority world leaders in online and blended education. ◦ BGU, City Vision, Overseas Council 5. Christian MOOCs & Courseware. Develop accredited global courseware platforms for online and blended education translated and culturally contextualized for the majority world. ◦ Imagination Summit 6. Democratize Instruction. Use online/remote faculty and courseware to enable wider base of local coaches/tutors with limited training to teach and contextualize (as is widely done with Christian small group curriculum with DVDs and RightNowMedia.com-Netflix of small groups) ◦ BGU, City Vision, Overseas Council 7. Articulation Agreement Consortium. Develop a Christian consortium to enable articulation agreements to happen on a many-to-many basis rather than one-to-one (possibly with tiers). Similar to CASE. ◦ ABHE, ICETE building an interface of standards to groups like TOPIC

  23. 23. What is the Global Christian College Credit Consortium (GC4)  Global Christian College Credit Consortium (GC4) is work area of CHIEA to provide course level accreditation to ministry schools ◦ We are doing this under Qualifi, which offers accreditation under the vocational frameworks structure of Ofqual in the UK. Level 3, 4 & 5 certificates/diplomas may be recognized in many commonwealth countries, and are considered accredited for transfer credit evaluation. ◦ May also develop multilateral alliance of Christian articulation agreements similar to CASE ◦ GC4 legally resides as a program of the Christian nonprofit TechMission ◦ Have initial approvals, but still in pilot stage  www.globalchristiancollege.org Theoretical Framework: Video, my Clayton Christensen Institute blog post (Part 1, Part 2)
