After about an hour, please look for your credential in your Canvas Badges (Badgr) Backpack (scroll on for details).
Register for Micro-Credentials
TAPP ed credentials are awarded through the Canvas Badges (Badgr) system. Canvas Badges (Badgr) is a “open badge” system, which means they can be viewed and shared almost anywhere, including LinkedIn, social media, and other profiles. Badges can also be kept in a Canvas Badges (Badgr) “backpack” or any other Open Badges backpack, organized into groups that you may want to share with different audiences. All badges can also be printed and shared as certificates.
It’s best to register for a personal Canvas Badges (Badgr) account. Then, look for the micro-credential link in any TAPP ed resource (podcast, seminar, book club review, etc.) and fill out the form to claim your credential. It’s pretty easy. Keep in mind that we’re still building out this function, so not all resources have the credential form linked yet.
Display, Print, & Use Micro-Credentials
The Canvas Badges (Badgr) Knowledge Base has all kinds of information about how to use your Canvas Badges (Badgr) Backpack or other backpacks, how to display or share your badges (or only select badges), and how to print them in the form of a certificate.
Your TAPP ed micro-credentials can be used as documentation for your employment applications, your promotion file, your professional development documentation, your submissions for continuing education units, to display in your home next to your spouse’s bowling trophies, and more.
Badges and Credential Groups
As you can see in the diagram that dissects the badge design, the TAPP ed badges are weird. You expected normal? Weird, yes, but full of information.
Notice that there are two important bits of information at the bottom: the group letter and the sequential number. The group letter signifies one of the credential groups listed below. Think of it as the alpha prefix in a course number—like the BIO in BIO 250. The sequential number is like the 250 in BIO 250. Thus “P 078” designates a badge as related to podcast episode 78.
Each group listed here has its own page with a table listing all the credentials for that group.
- B group — credentials related to The A&P Professor Book Club readings and related learning opportunities
- C group — credentials related to The A&P Professor Community, such as courses and networking activities
- P group — credentials related to The A&P Professor podcast
- S group — credentials related to The A&P Professor seminars and related resources
It’s easy to share your badges on social media, your LinkedIn profile, and all kinds of places!
You can also easily add your badge to any Open Badges backpack or collection.
