THE CERTIFICATION

This self-directed certification and badge program allows participants to choose their preferred tracks towards certification and/or badges.

Participants interested in completing the entire Teaching and Learning (T&L) certification must complete the Program Core (25 pts) plus an additional 75 points in at least three areas of their choosing (i.e. badges). All participants must watch an information video about each area and complete a required initial activity before beginning additional activities in each area.

T&L Certification: Core (25 pts) + 3 bronze badges (25 pts+ per badge) or equivalent points = 100 pts
Participants have up to three years to complete the T&L Certification. 

BADGES

Badges can also be earned within individual concentrations without completing the entire T&L Certification.

Bronze Badge = 25 pts

Silver Badge = 50 pts

Gold Badge = 75 pts

POINTS

Points are earned by writing short reflections in WyoLearn (approximately 1 paragraph per point). 1 point is approximately 1 hour  of time.

To register for this certification program in WyoLearn, follow the below instructions:

1.) Go to ECTL Certification and Badge Program on WyoLearn

2.) Click "Enroll"

3.) Enter your UW credentials-  (name@uwyo.edu)

4.) Click "Enroll in Courses"

5.) Click "Begin Course" to enroll in any of the listed focus areas in which you are seeking to earn badges or certifications.

We are asking everyone to enroll in the CORE, even if you only intend to get badges in a few of the focus areas. This course is required if you intend to do the entire certification. The Core is also where we will make announcements that apply to all the courses. Click here to view The Certification Program Informational Handout.
