ETEC 670 Digital Badges: Getting Started With Micro-Credentialing

College of Critical & Professional Studies

3 credits 42.0 hours
600 level graduate course

Badges make your classroom goals visible to students. Badges, or ‘micro-credentials,’ help
motivate students, as students are able to see what they need to do to reach a goal or master a
skill. Students want to do well, and they want to be recognized for their accomplishments. Leave
this course with a foundational understanding of digital badges- online representations of skills
earned- and open badges- verification of student skills, interests and achievements- and how to
implement a badge system within your school or classroom. Take your current curriculum, lift up
those objectives, skills, understandings and concepts, to represent as badges that show
criteria students must meet to earn them. The case study method will be used to illustrate the
successful design and implementation of digital badge systems by schools and educators.

Open to graduate students from the Division of Continuing Studies.
This course is not repeatable for credit.
