What is a digital badge? 

A digital badge is a validated indicator of accomplishment, skill, quality, or interest that is awarded by credible brands and organizations. It certifies that you have the capability to perform role-related tasks and activities at the specified level of competence and according to the unique criteria required in that training.

 

 

The metadata encoded in the digital badge will reveal:

  • The type of achievement or credential awarded

  • Who awarded you the badge, when, and what it took to earn the badge

  • The set of certified skills and their alignment to specific industry standards (if applicable)

  • Link to course-specific additional information about the badge

 

How can you make the most out of your badges?

  • Combine your credentials to form a complete overview of your skills and expertise

  • Display your badges in your portfolio, email signature, on your resume, business cards, and social media

  • Provide others with valid verification of your credentials with easy access to transcript for official documentation

 

How can you earn a badge?

 

The Design Academy’s Human-Centered Design Thinking Essentials Training is a 5-level pathway, through which participants earn a badge for each learning stage completed successfully. The Design Academy badging pathway is open to paid enrollees who complete the criteria required at each level.

 

Although helpful, no previous Human-Centered Design Thinking experience is required to enter the Foundations Workshop. Should you like to learn more about the field before you dive in, you can sign up for our one-day introductory class.
