In a hands-on workshop presented for members of the Central New York Library Resources Council (CLRLC) participants learned about digital badging and its applications in higher education and libraries. The presentation provides an overview of micro-credentialing as a growing trend in education, and provides a behind-the-scenes look at the development and implementation of the Metaliteracy Badging System (metaliteracybadges.org), a collaborative project led by librarians, instructional designers and disciplinary faculty across State University of New York (SUNY) institutions. Participants had the opportunity to engage with each other about badging examples and brainstormed ideas for creating a badging program.
