Building a Better Badge Program: A Flexible Model for an Information and Digital Literacy Badge & Certificate Program

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The University of Wyoming Libraries, in partnership with the University of Wyoming's Elbogen Center for Teaching and Learning (ECTL), has developed an innovative Certificate for Teaching and Learning and badge program to incorporate information literacy services in the current Certificate and to increase the Certificate's completion rate. This presentation will cover the redesign of the program, the benefits of combining badging with a certificate program, and will report on the first year of the new certificate program, including successes, failures, readjustments, and assessments.

Participants will:
  • Recognize the potential for deeper collaborations between librarians and teaching and learning centers and start to identify potential projects at their own institutions.
  • Identify the benefits of combining a badging system with a certificate program and recognize the personal and professional benefits to participants.
  • Discover the successful pieces of a sustainable model for creating an information and digital literacy certificate program in their own libraries, with or without a center for teaching and learning.
