Which badges will give you the biggest bang for your buck?

Overview

When it comes to choosing the badges to pursue at your institution, not all badges are created equal. You’ll be able to maximize your potential in badging by carefully considering the merits of these 3 types:

  • Academic badges – Badges that correspond to courses and can stack to equate to a certificate or degree
  • Enhancement badges – Badges that correspond to co-curricular activities
  • Non-traditional badges – Badges that align with professional development and partnerships with business and industry

Which badge types are right for you? Our advice may surprise you.

Join us online to learn the value of all three badge types and how they can contribute to your institution’s badging strategy. You’ll leave with ideas around how to refine the scope of your badging initiative.
