CETL Featured in Article

Last week the CETL was featured in a Campus Technology website article titled Badges: A New Measure of Professional Development. The article discusses how some institutions are using badges to create, issue, and share digital badges and how these currencies are gaining acceptance in higher education and professional development institutions. Since 2013 the CETL has used badges to better acknowledge and reward faculty and staff professional development. In the first year we used a system of points and badges and currently we moved to a more competency-based model. To learn more about our badges click HERE. To read the full article click HERE.
