Abstract: This paper reports on an effort to develop a digital badging and e-portfolio environment that will illuminate and assess 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 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 chosen. Students will be able to see 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.
