Open Badges are online credentials that take the form of digital icons. If you earn a badge from us, you can post it to online media like Twitter and LinkedIn. When a viewer clicks your badge, information will appear that shows what you had to do to earn it.

If you qualify for a badge due to your past participation in the program, and would like to claim it, set up an account with Credly and send us an email at research.commons@ubc.ca
