In our ongoing effort to improve professional development, ECE uses a micro-credentialing system in which badges are issued for attending live workshops through ECE as well as completion of assignments associated with some workshops.
To earn a badge for professional development, attend a professional development workshop offered through ECE. Some workshops will require the completion of an assignment before the badge is awarded. For example, after a faculty member attends the Rubrics Workshop, they will be enrolled in the ECE Professional Development Moodle course to submit a rubric for evaluation. After the rubric passes evaluation, the badge for the Rubrics Workshop will be awarded. Assignments can be completed within two weeks of the live workshop. The badge will then be sent to the faculty’s NSU email address. To accept the badge, click through the email and create an account on the platform. The badge will be added to your library and can be shared to multiple social sites and portfolios. Read more about this process in the Resources section below, or email ECE at email@example.com.
