Earning a Digital Badge

The participant who engages in all the daily required workshop activities has successfully completed a session that can apply towards earning a digital badge embedded with their name, email, and achievement criteria. If an attendee is ill or otherwise cannot attend that day’s session, arrangements to complete the above requirements must be made with the approval of the Executive Director. To earn a digital badge at your registered level, participants must successfully complete all daily activities as well as present your individual or group project in the final session. If you cannot complete your presentation or attend the final session or both, you must make arrangements for completion approved by the Executive Director.

If, after the start of the workshop, an attendee believes the beginning or intermediate Digital Badge level does not match expectations, the attendee can move to the next more advanced level with permission from the Workshop Assistant Director. The attendee will be given credit for all successfully completed activities and criteria enumerated above in order to earn a Digital Badge for their preferred level.
