Q. What are the information literacy digital badges?


What Are Digital Badges?

Digital badges are a form of micro-credentials which acknowledge that learning not only happens within the college classroom but also informally with campus lectures, workshops, and academic support programing.  The digital badge program offered through Library Services at Delaware County Community College acknowledges the information literacy education students receive through our workshops whether online, in-person, or simulcast.  Students are able to display the badges they earn online through popular social networking sites including Credly, LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook.  These badges allow those viewing your digital profile to know you have gain additional knowledge through these informal learning opportunities.  Each badge includes information detailing the description of the workshop you attended along with the criteria used by Library Services to award the badge.
