Key Takeaways

This study investigated the potential for digital badges to certify andshowcase the competencies students gain while participating in campus-based clubs.Thirty-one young professionals who were active in student clubs during college were asked about the value that digital badges might have had for their careers if the badges had been available when they were students.Most (58 percent) said that using digital badges to certify and highlight competencies gained through student club activities would have been useful as they entered the job market after college.Study participants’ views varied depending on their club experiences; those who focused on knowledge acquisition and leadership in their clubswere more favorable toward digital badges than those whose involvement emphasized professional networking.
