The Lead365 National Conference Badge 

All conference attendees have the opportunity to receive an electronic “credential” as documentation of a high level of engagement during the Lead365 National Conference.  By submitting the Conference Evaluation and Badge Verification Form at the closing session, an electronic badge  is issued and verified by Credly, a valued sponsor of the Lead365 National Conference.  Your badge comes with instructions on how to put it on your social and professional networking sites like Linkedin, Mozilla and Facebook. This offers potential employers and interested parties a more detailed look at the  Lead365 Conference experience and competency growth opportunities.  There is no charge. If you have any questions after receiving your badge and accompanying instructions, go to the Credly Knowledge Page.

Earn Student Leadership Competency Electronic Badges 

Student Leadership Competencies Badging is an official credential system offered through the Student Leadership Competencies Program, a nationally recognized research-based framework in student leadership development. Badges are a way to recognize and showcase the development of a particular leadership competency.  Unlike a certificate that documents an experience (like the badge above), a badge is a specific credential that showcases learning.  Digital badges are kept in an online portal to be showcased on ePortfolios like LinkedIn, Mozzilla, Facebook and so on.  The technology behind this badging program is provided by Credly.

By using a recognized badging system such as the SLC Badging Program, participants can earn badges across institutions, associations, conferences, and experiences – much like earning a Girl Scout badge, thus highlighting a comprehensive collection of achievements.  Badges on LinkedIn, for instance, can be kept in the “credentials” section on your page.

The Lead365 National Conference is offering the opportunity for participants to earn TWO of the 60 competency badges offered through the SLC Program.  The two badges are the Verbal Communication badge and the Appropriate Interaction badge.

VERBAL COMMUNICATION BADGE:

  • Learning:  Complete 4 hours of documented training related to the competency

  • Assessment:  Complete an assessment that measures competency development  (provided in the Passport)
  • Reflection:  Complete a written or oral reflection of learning (writing prompts and format provided in the Passport provided)

All four of these requirements for the Verbal Communication badge are built into the conference curriculum as noted below and complete guidelines are provided at registration onsite.  Once confirmation of payment of an additional $39 per badge is made, participants will receive an official PASSPORT.  The specific workshops, labs, assessment and reflection for earning the Verbal Communication badge has been approved and verified through the SLC Badging Program.  Advance registration for the badge is available at the time of conference registration, or on site.
