Digital Badge for International Education Partnerships

Explore the critical aspects of developing and sustaining strategic and productive international partnerships as they relate to your own institution. Through analysis of case studies, you will examine common models of structuring, contracting and evaluating international partnerships and the infrastructure needed to do so. You will also develop protocols for leading and hosting international delegations, as well as tracking and reporting on international activities.  

This course is for existing International Education professionals who participated in five interactive virtual workshops reviewing the role of partnerships in global engagement strategies and reviewing current partnerships at your organization. As a culminating project you will develop an International Partnership rubric to evaluate and structure prospective international partnerships, develop contracts to operationalize these relationships, and track and report international activities.

What are Microcredentials?

Whether you’re a current student or a working professional, microcredentials will help you develop new, relevant and demonstrable skills that can give you an edge in a competitive job market. 

Microcredentials at the University at Albany are a collection of courses and experiences that teach industry-aligned skills and competencies, which are documented by digital badges. 

Being able to clearly articulate your skills means you’ll be better positioned to bridge the gap between college and career, or between your current job and your dream job. You can also stack microcredentials into larger skillsets and credentials.

Our programs are developed using established faculty governance processes and endorsed by UAlbany, so the skills you learn are portable, meaningful and high quality. The programs are offered at the undergraduate or graduate level, or as an opportunity for continuing education. Many are conveniently offered online.
