Many of us are likely familiar with micro-certification or digital badges in general but may want to learn more details about how it can be used to benefit learners, instructors, and librarians. The presenters will provide an overview of their digital badge programs and use cases and will focus on best practices of designing and implementing a program that will be useful to anyone considering new modes of meaningful instruction. The presentation will have natural conversation points and the presenters will foster an interactive discussion.
