ELN's digital badges will help you build skills for your career while engaging in your mentored project.
You will work through a series of activities at your own pace to activate the full potential of experiential learning.
While engaging in a mentored project from the Project Portal, you will work through a series of independent activities to earn one of the following digital badges. Select the badge that most closely aligns with your project focus and complete all four project phases listed below to earn your digital badge and display your achievement.
To earn a digital badge, you will complete a series of activities, which are divided into four phases. You will work at your own pace, and once you complete all of the activities you will be awarded the digital badge, which you can share on your digital resume or LinkedIn to demonstrate your skills and accomplishments to future employers. Note: To get started, find a project and follow the steps in the project profile.
A digital badge is a new type of credential that allows you to show the specific skills you've gained through learning experiences. It's a clickable icon that can digitally display your work and accomplishments to key audiences, like future employers or graduate schools, when embedded on your digital resume, ePortoflio or LinkedIn.
