Digital Badges for Staff Training: Motivate Employees to Learn with Micro-Credentials
Copenhaver, Kimberly; Pritchard, Liz
Journal of Electronic Resources Librarianship, v29 n4 p245-254 2017
Integrating micro-credentialing into employee training programs offers libraries an innovative and individualized way to recognize and certify learning and achievement. Digital badges provide a low-cost initiative to support learning benefiting both the individual and institution, offering evidence of skill development that transcends the library and contributes to a student's professional skill set. The micro-credentialing program piloted at the Eckerd College Library showcases the integration of digital badges into the student employee training program. Interactive activities engage students beyond the initial training session and encourage advanced skill acquisition throughout the student's tenure, contributing to the development of marketable professional skills.
