This year PESC builds upon the knowledge and experience shared and garnered at the past several Data Summits.
In the Fall of 2016 in San Diego, PESC resources combined
to produce the Common Credential for Certificates,
Degrees and Diplomas in record time.
For Spring of 2017 in DC, PESC looked externally in producing Empowering the Mobility of Digital Academic Credentials, showcasing external projects, resources and speakers and exemplifying the value and need for engagement
of all stakeholders in the ecosystem.
Fall 2017 took PESC to Toronto for its 20th Anniversary
to invigorate global mobility and collaboration across Canada, one of the largest users of all PESC Approved Standards.
At the Spring 2018 Data Summit, PESC prepares for
the next big jump in technology. The emergence of JSON and of the employment and training sectors as users, on the demand-side of a supply-demand model, are provoking innovation and collaboration like never before.
Innovation and collaboration result in common solutions,
and at the Spring 2018 PESC highlights these solutions, convenes the thought-leaders and experts and
maximizes the power of convening in-person.
Thank you for attending the Spring 2018 Data Summit!
We wish you an enjoyable experience, thank you for your continued support of PESC and thank our Annual Diamond Sponsors for helping make the Data Summits possible.

PESC and ACADEMIC CREDENTIALING
In June 2015 PESC formed the Academic Credentialing and Experiential Learning Task Force to monitor and track current initiatives, provide speakers and presenters at several industry-leading conferences and events, serve as a clearinghouse for information, and ensure PESC is prepared for standards development work as the community is reaching the point in which standards are needed.
The Task Force identified a gap in standards for the exchange of certificates, degrees and diplomas and worked through PESC to develop the PESC Approved XML Common Credential for Certificates, Degrees and Diplomas. The Task Force continues to convene and focus on new and specific use cases (business or process cases) to determine their value and need in the community while leveraging technology and standards to meet the needs of emerging mobile academic credentials.
At PESC’s Spring 2017 Data Summit – Empowering the Mobility of Digital Academic Credentials at which Connecting Credentials co-sponsored – Credential Engine and PESC convened a comprehensive data mapping initiative across all standards bodies. As part of this initiative, PESC and HR-Open Standards signed a joint MOU in August 2017. PESC is corresponding partners with Erasmus Without Paper and EMREX in Europe, and is undertaking additional data mapping exercises including data transmission and exchange.
