Digital Advancement Badges

humanities dab badgeOur Digital Advancement Badging (Humanities DAB) program recognizes students who have achieved significant competencies working in digital areas. These competencies can be acquired through a combination of coursework and experiential activities. Many of these capacities can be developed as students engage with projects in our Digital Innovation Incubator or pursue research and teaching interests. Working with CDH and DIL staff, students identify possibilities for gaining skills, and then demonstrate their competencies to achieve a microcredential that can be used to recognize their digital capacities.

The DIL currently offers two badges for graduate students (Digital Pedagogy and Digital Project Management) and one badge for undergraduates (Data Studies).  Please see specific badge pages for more information.
