Digital Badges and Library Instructional Programs: Academic Library Case Study
Rodgers, Andrea Reed; Puterbaugh, Mark
Journal of Electronic Resources Librarianship, v29 n4 p236-244 2017
This case study describes the planning, implementation, and migration process of Eastern University Library's information literacy digital badge. Prior to implementing a badging program, information literacy sessions were informally embedded in first-year college writing courses as a "one-shot" presentation. Spurred on by accreditation requirements, the library formalized its instruction by creating an information literacy digital badge. With a limited budget, low-cost tools such as Credly, Wordpress, and LearnDash were selected to serve as our delivery platforms. Through user feedback (both faculty and student), the library reevaluated the program and integrated the badge into the University's learning management system (LMS).
