Badges for Faculty Development
The Center for Instructional & Learning Technologies (CILT) is excited to issue digital badges via Credly as evidence that earners have attended CILT workshops, forums, or other special events.
Digital badges assist with promoting, tracking, and organizing faculty development by capturing and communicating achievements (Hamson-Utley, 2016).

This badge was awarded to faculty who attended the "Taking Your Course Online" forum that was held on Wednesday, March 8. The session covered effective strategies and best practices in online teaching and learning.

This session will provide learners with an overview of Active Learning, including: definitions, barriers, and discuss different strategies that can lead students towards active learning.
