Microcredentialing (Digital Badges) in Learning Environments

June 25, 2020 at 11AM ET – Zoom info below

Presenter: Victoria Raish, Online Learning Librarian, The Pennsylvania State University

Microcredentials (digital badges) have been increasing in use since the early beginnings in 2012. As the technology rapidly evolves and develops, the range of learning environments and learners that are using digital badges varies as well. From K-12 to industry, these microlearning opportunities are preparing learners with visual representations of their skills, competencies, and knowledge. This discussion is for anyone interested in microcredentials and their use in learning environments.


Victoria Raish is the online learning librarian for Penn State and has been a leader in microcredentials since their early beginnings. She has developed, issued, and evaluated multiple badges for Penn State libraries. The library has issued over 10,000 badges in the past three years. She also serves as the co-chair of IMS Global Digital Credentials Informal Learning Network and as co-chair of the taskforce to develop microcredentials at Penn State. She has also co-edited a technical report on open badges.
