Teaching at GSU? Assign our Badges -- no extra work for YOU!

Teaching at GSU? Assign our Badges -- no extra work for YOU!

Integrate GSU Data Ready! Badges into your course or program curriculum! Students can attend live workshops or recorded workshops on their own time, go to the GSU Library's Stacks course catalog to join/"enroll" in the appropriate GSU Data Ready! Badge course, and complete our quiz learning assessments to earn badges. Once students receive a badge, have them share it with you for verification by either (1) having them forward their Badgr email notification, or (2) having them create a Badgr account to then send you a link to their badge in their Badgr Backpack.

It's that simple and requires no content creation by you!
