New Digital Badge Applications

14 Mar 2019
Digital Badge applications

Applications for Digital Badges are currently closed.

Applications for a new digital badge should be submitted as a proposal for review to the Digital Badge Sub-Committee (DBSC).

Micro-credentials, or digital badges, are being offered in most of the world’s top ranked universities as students increasingly seek recognition for non-accredited extra-curricular contributions made during their studies.  Through the Office of Vice President for Learning and Teaching, UCC has been engaged locally, regionally and nationally in designing, developing and delivering innovative digital badge pilot projects. These pilots have demonstrated the opportunity and operational feasibility of digital badges.  The delivery of digital badges directly addresses the university’s strategic goal of ‘Delivering research inspired teaching and learning with a world class student experience’. The badges refer directly to the university’s essential values of

  • Creativity,
  • Responsiveness,
  • Transparency,
  • Scholarship,
  • Freedom of Expression,
  • Integrity, Equality,
  • Diversity and Respect.

These badges can be issued to UCC staff and students.
