Claiming through Credly
FIU has partnered with Credly to offer digital badges for Micro-Credential earners. A Micro-Credential can be represented through a single badge or a series of badges - also known as a meta-badge.
Once you've completed all of the requirements to earn your Micro-Credential, your digital badge will be issued to you within 3 weeks. You will receive an email from Credly’s platform (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the following subject: “Florida International University issued you a new badge”. Once you have received this email, take the following steps:
- Click the “Accept your badge” box in the middle of the message
- Create your Credly profile if you have not done so already
- Accept your badge
- Share your badge to LinkedIn and other social media platforms
Share your Micro-Credential
Once you've earned your badge, you can share it on your:
- LinkedIn account or other social media
- Website or online portfolio
- Email signature
Micro-Credentials are not documented on FIU students’ academic transcripts. They serve as a digital representation of competencies gained through participation in FIU courses and/or co-curricular activities.
Create your narrative
Now that you have earned a Micro-Credential, it is important to reflect on the skills you have and language that you can use to talk about them. The practice of reflection will help you to develop a narrative around your professional development journey - which is important as you prepare for an interview, promotion, or other opportunities.
