Albion College Innovation Badges

We are pleased to announce the official launch of Innovation Badges (IBs) at Albion College! Innovation Badges are the Albion College brand of digital badges – digital microcredentials that are indicative of an accomplishment, skill, or competency.

Why should you complete an Innovation Badge? IBs are displayed, accessed, and verified online and provide official recognition of your experiential learning, professional development activities, and pursuit of specialized interests. They  provide evidence of knowledge, skill, or competency acquisition in units smaller than the traditional degree, or in ways that enhance our credit-bearing offerings.

There are more than 15 Innovation Badges being offered this fall. These badges include: 3D Printing, “Foundations of Race and Belonging,” “Environmental Justice in Albion,” “Introduction to Community Engagement,” and more!
