Think College Webinar: Demonstrating Student Competencies: Microcredentials & Digital Badging
Students enrolled in inclusive postsecondary college programs develop mastery and gain knowledge on a range of topics. They learn how to problem solve, collaborate, and take initiative. They develop leadership and communication skills. Yet, how do you demonstrate such competencies in the absence of formal certification or degree?
On January 25, Dr. Tobey Partch-Davies will join Think College to discuss these questions. She will provide information on microcredentials and explain how they can be used to document formal and informal learning. Dr. Partch-Davies will share examples of how UNH-4U is documenting student competencies using digital badging.
The webinar will help participants:
- Identify learning objectives in programs of study
- Demonstrate competencies in absence of formal certification or degree
- Understand what a microcredential is, why we are using them, and why it’s important
- Understand how a microcredential can help a student enter their career pathway and support their future plans
