The aim of this report is to highlight efforts to develop a digital badging and e-portfolio environment that will illuminate and validate curricular, co-curricular, and extracurricular learning in cybersecurity. This effort includes Cal Poly Pomona and Coastline College, which are both designated as Centers of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense (CAE-CD) along with a collection of academic and industry partners in creating learning pathways that move interested beginners all the way through to an exciting career in the field of cybersecurity. The pathways are designed to incorporate curricular, co-curricular, and extracurricular learning in a student-managed process in which students consume the learning modules they desire/need, and which move them toward the learning goals they have selected. Students will be able to visualize how formal curricular programs align with their learning journey and plan curricular, co-curricular, and extracurricular learning tasks that fit their plan and allow them to achieve their academic and career goals.
