At the Center for Online Learning & Innovation, we have developed a badging system to recognize the contributions and competencies of our practitioners. Digital badges are the new form of certificates and are a way to recognize the contributions and competencies of our practitioners. COLI Badges can be earned by all Canisius faculty, staff, and students. They are awarded after an individual attends a COLI event or training. Additionally, we have created constellations of levels of badges, so that earners have clear paths to move from novice to master. Badge offerings will be updated every year, like COLI trainings. This will allow individuals the opportunity to earn a variety of badges every year.

43 badges and 6 master badges will be offered in the 2016-2017 academic year.

COLI is using to distribute the COLI Badges. Credly integration allows COLI lots of possibilities for crediting professional development in the future, including for participation and successful completion of virtual trainings via the COLI Blog. Earners will be able to collect, track and promote their earned badges on Credly, as well.

We are very much inspired by badge initiatives at other colleges, including SUNYUniversity of Wisconsin at Stout, and University of Michigan Medical School.
