Digital Badging and Micro-Credentials
Memorial University is thrilled to partner with the Association of Registrars’ of the Universities and Colleges of Canada and to be included in its digital platform, MyCreds. Gardiner Centre is using MyCreds to award credentials for professional development courses and programs.
Graduates will be issued a digital badge as a visual representation of the skills developed. A digital badge is an indicator of accomplishment or skill that can be displayed, accessed, and verified online. A digital badge serves both as recognition of learning or achievement and digital proof of that accomplishment. The badge will verify expertise to potential employers, track personal growth and career pathing and offer a visual of lifelong learning accomplishments.
“Progressing our technologies to support student success is our top priority,” said David Pierce, manager of systems with the registrar’s office. “Partnering with digital platforms allows us to create business processes that are easy, safe and convenient for our students’ digital experiences.”
The MyCreds National Network now covers all public post-secondary institutions in Newfoundland and Labrador, with Memorial University joining the College of the North Atlantic on the MyCreds platform.
