Graduate students are invited to participate in a pilot in spring 2015 to earn microcredentials that recognize their accomplishments in digital pedagogy.

There are three badges that students can earn in the spring in the area of digital content delivery. The Digital Content Delivery Badge Area focuses on and recognizes the development of abilities to leverage digital technologies in delivering course content across different contexts for specific pedagogical purposes. Badges in this category are awarded for demonstrated proficiency in delivering digital course content.

These microcredentials, or badges, evaluate teaching with technology in several areas and make it easier for students to earn the Teaching with Technology Certificate.

The program is co-sponsored by TLT and the College of Liberal Arts and is open to all graduate students. To learn more, please contact Kate Miffett at
