There are three main types of badges offered by the CLT: Faculty Orientation to Online Learning, Exploring Blended Learning, and Wiki Tech Talks.
Faculty Orientation to Online Learning Badges:
Instructors who complete the CLT’s Faculty Orientation to Online Learning gain basic familiarity with theoretical and practical aspects of designing an online course, starting from either the adaptation of a traditional course or the creation of an entirely new one, as well as with the resources available to them at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa. The series covers three basic skill areas–Content Development, Interaction, and Technology–and progresses through six face-to-face sessions supplemented with online content and interaction. Each of these sessions, scheduled every two weeks, provides guided, hands-on practice and consultation opportunities to develop a fully online course.
Exploring Blended Learning Badge:
An Exploring Blended Learning badge certifies that the badge recipient has completed the Exploring Blended Learning series, gained basic understanding of the principles of blended learning, and become familiar with tools and approaches for creating blended learning experiences in his/her course curriculum.
Wiki Tech Talks Presenter Badge:
A Wiki Tech Talks Presenter badge certifies that the badge recipient has given a 10-minute Wiki Tech Talk about a particular tool, website, or technology-based activity and contributed towards training his/her professional peers from the College of Languages, Linguistics, & Literature (LLL) at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa.
Improving Web Accessibility Badge:
An Improving Web Accessibility Badge certifies that the badge recipient has attended the Web Accessibility Webinar to gain basic knowledge about ADA, Section 508, Universal Design principles, and web accessibility guidelines. The badge recipient has also participated in a TedEd online discussion forum and submitted a syllabus that complies with web accessibility principles.
