Badging began as a way to acknowledge the skills gained by students in our non-credit professional development courses. Digital badges are flexible and allow students and staff alike to showcase their knowledge and abilities. The badges help students stand out to employers .  

Madison College is dedicated to embracing digital badging as part of our culture. It is a simple way to award learners with credentials beyond our degrees. 


"Talking about my digital badges in job interviews gave me confidence and a voice I didn’t know I had."
