SLC school of business launches digital badge program

December 3, 2014

The St Lawrence College School of Business has announced the creation of a new digital badge program that will provide students with a way to validate their accomplishments and skills. The program will use technology from the Mozilla Backpack to offer a digital complement to students’ transcripts. Badges will be available in the areas of critical thinking, communication, creative thinking, entrepreneurship, information management, leadership, networking, teamwork, and volunteering. “We’re one of the only colleges in Canada to be offering this enhanced learning opportunity for our students at this time. By earning badges, students will compete in a global environment by having their skills, abilities, and achievements verified; it’s an ideal way for them to bolster their education, making them even more career-ready when they graduate,” said John Conrad, Associate Dean of the SLC School of Business. SLC News Release
