We are very excited to share with the Saint Mary’s community the expansion of our badging and micro-credentialing initiative to include the School of Education. 

Building on the overwhelming success of digital badging in the School of Business and Technology, Saint Mary’s is proud to have the School of Education join this initiative by offering 20 distinct micro-credentials beginning at the close of Summer I. 

Each of these micro-credentials will be tied to graduate courses and certificates in four high-demand fields:

  • Culturally Responsive Teaching
    • CRT 605, CRT 610, CRT 615, CRT 620, CRT 625
  • Mental Health in Education
    • EDM 650, EDM 655, EDM 660, EDM 665, EDM 670
  • Critical, Creative and Design Thinking
    • LDT 600, LDT 602, LDT 630, LDT 640, LDT 642
  • Teaching, Leading, Learning with Technology
    • LDT 610, LDT 612, LDT 620, LDT 622, LDT 632

Students successfully completing the courses above in Fall 2020 or Spring 2021 will have these badges issued to them automatically.

Browse the complete list of our 61 course badge offerings here.

If you have successfully completed a badged course prior to Fall 2020 and would like to receive the corresponding badge(s),  we ask that you complete this request form. 

We continue to be energized by the enthusiasm and interest our community has shown for our innovative approach to badging and micro-credentials. With that in mind, we look forward to continuing the work to identify and recognize skills-based achievement across the university, helping to ensure that our students are among the most well-prepared to meet the challenges of tomorrow.
