Once you have successfully completed any four out of seven badges, you will be eligible to apply for the Postdoctoral Scholar Certificate in University Teaching and Learning.
Badges are digital icons with embedded information about when, where and how they were earned. These micro-credentials provide a visual record of achievement, and can be combined with a portfolio to allow users to demonstrate their learning in ways other than traditional credit course work.
