What is a Create Badge?

A Create Badge is a way to showcase your work by earning a badge that demonstrates your understanding of a topic by creating a project.

How does it work?

Take a SkillShop on any topic, in-person or online, and create a digital project that incorporates or expands upon the topic you learned about or use the tool or technology you learned about in the SkillShop to create something on a topic of your choice.

For example, if you complete the online Video Storytelling SkillShop you could then create a video about how recycling works in Humboldt County (or make a campus tour, or teach other people about study skills, etc. The topics possibilities are up to you and your interests!). 

Or, for an in-person example, if you take a Well-being and Stress Management SkillShop, you can create an infographic, video, podcast, etc. to share or expand upon what you learned about well-being and managing stress. Send that to us (email a link or file to skillshops@humboldt.edu) and we'll evaluate your project and issue your badge. 

You can then add your badge and a link to your project in your resume or online portfolio to showcase your work!
