About the Program

An ongoing goal of the CTL is to foster professional development experiences that are not only crucial to our departments and individual faculty members but that are reliable, engaging, relevant, and provide faculty the opportunity to immediately use or implement new learning. To accomplish this, the CTL is piloting a new stackable, digital badge microcredential program for faculty to engage in activities that are personal to individual teaching goals and receive feedback from our highly talented and qualified staff.

These will be unique in that they will be:

  • Online
  • Open entry/open exit
  • Competency based
  • Clearly defined
  • Aligned
  • Stacked (By outcomes and by Level 1, Level 2, etc.)
  • Clear outcomes
  • Produce evidence and portfolio products
  • Have individualized feedback from CTL experts
  • Associated; stackable badges
