GTA and PTI Digital Badges

Graduate Student and PTI Badges

The Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning offers CETL Digital Badges to verify completion of in-person training. Digital Badges are a widely recognized way of verifying training. They can be stored in a Mozilla backpack or on Credly, attached to LinkedIn and other social media, added as icons on a personal website, or simply noted in a vita.

Badges provide a means of recognizing the commitment our graduate teaching assistants and part-time instructors have to improving their teaching at GSU and to preparing themselves to be responsible members of the academic community.  They are free to earn and are awarded as a means of illustrating our appreciation for the work students put in to their training.
