SkillShop Badges are a way to show what you learned in SkillShops and how you applied it in an individual project. You can share your badges with instructors (if assigned to complete a SkillShops Project) and on your résumé as evidence that you are dedicated to learning new skills, but also that you can apply what you learned. Doing a SkillShop Project to earn a badge is a great way to practice using the skills you are learning and to explore how you can use them in personal, academic, and professional contexts.
There is not a specific series of badges to earn. The number of badges available depends upon the number of projects you create You can complete as many projects as you like to earn more badges, the only requirement is that each project must focus on a different topic or ‘Create’ skill.
Depending on the SkillShop badge path you take, the project will have different requirements.
Email your project to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be sure to use or include your HSU email, your name, and a link to your project so that we can review it. If you completed five SkillShops and want to submit your blog post to earn a badge, self-enroll in the Skilled Learner Badge course in Canvas.
There is not a specific series of badges to earn. The number of badges available depends upon the number of projects you create You can complete as many projects as you like to earn more badges, the only requirement is that each project must focus on a different topic and a different ‘Create’ SkillShop than a previous project.
There are a number of ways you can share your badges, but more importantly you should share the projects you create as well. Link your projects to a portfolio you create, include them on your resume and identify the skills you developed during the work on your projects.
Your badges will be displayed on the SkillShop Leaderboard and in your Badgr Backpack. If you’ve been assigned an Online SkillShop and are required to share your badge with an instructor, there are instructions in each Online SkillShop about how to share your badge. You can also view these instructions for sharing a badge from a Canvas Course.
There are several possibilities of why you might not have yet received your badge.
