From your embedded librarian.
My name is Plamen Miltenoff (https://web.stcloudstate.edu/pmiltenoff/faculty/) and I am InforMedia Specialist with the SCSU Library (https://blog.stcloudstate.edu/ims/free-tech-instruction/)
Dr. Sivaprakasam and I are developing a microcredentialing system for your class.
The “library” part has several components:
- One badge for your ability to use the databases and find reliable scientific information in your field (required)
- One badge for your ability to use social media for a serious, reliable, scientific research (required)
- One badge for using the D2L “embedded librarian” widget to contact the librarian with questions regarding your class research (optional)
- One badge for helping class peer with his research (optional)
Collecting two of the required and one of the optional badges let you earn the superbadge “Mastery of Library Instruction.”
The superbadge brings points toward your final grade.

According to the authors of a newly published report, at least 10 state education agencies—Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Louisiana, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Washington—have launched official microcredential pilots. And another five states—Illinois, Maryland, Montana, New York, and Wyoming—are experimenting with microcredentials in some way.
sponsored by the non-profit Digital Promise, the report argues that we’ve reached a kind of tipping point in the evolution of the “emerging micro-credentialing ecosystem,”
Reports from early adopters (among them, the NEA, the country’s largest teachers’ union) have been promising, and the potential market for such programs is potentially huge. According to Digital Promise, nearly three out of four U.S. teachers are currently engaged in some type of informal professional development or learning.
