PSU Scranton Fall 2023 Badges and more!
Join us this semester for multiple digital badge programs from Information Technology Support and the Center for Instructional Design. By popular demand, we will be offering our Media Badge which now has an emphasis on video production, our Accessibility Badge, and our new Advanced Canvas Badge
Participants who complete our badges will have them awarded through the Penn State badging platform for display on your personal webpage or LinkedIn.
We are also offering information sessions on Artificial Intelligence, the first session is August 29, and we will have a sandbox session on 9/6 for participants to give AI a try.
Media Production Badge
Participants will create a piece of instructional or promotional media, starting with their learning objective or story idea and proceeding through production to a final presentation to their audience. Badge earners will develop their objective/idea into a video or other choice of media, such as a podcast, website or multimedia presentation, by following the production steps of their choice. Our Campus Media Badge is in 3 sessions and includes a fourth session for sharing completed participant media productions.
Participants will learn Penn State accessibility requirements and create a Canvas course utilizing Universal Design for Learning principles. Badge earners will produce accessible course materials and media to provide for the inclusion of all students. Our Accessibility Badge is in 5 sessions and includes consulting with the campus Instructional Designer for creating a new course or revising an existing course.
Advanced Canvas Badge
Participants will continue with the Penn State Canvas Learning Path, building a class for large enrollments with integrated third-party learning tools, Canvas Learning Master Gradebook, and ePortfolios. Badge earners will also develop strategies for empowering student group collaborations.
