Information Literacy courses with Open Badge

Specialised library staff hold free Information Literacy courses that issue Open Badges – a new international, innovative, digital and secure tool for certifying acquired knowledge, skills and abilities - used all over the world by companies, universities and training organisations.

Open Badges:

  • are digital certificates – composed of a graphic part (image) and a part containing metadata
  • provide information on the organisation that issues them (issuer), on the people to whom they are awarded (learner) and on the methods and criteria used to assign the badge
  • trace the objectives achieved in a personal and secure way.

Courses for Bachelor’s students

  • Information Literacy – basic level: a 4-hour theoretical-practical course providing the basic skills related to the search, selection, management, use and citation of bibliographic information that are necessary for writing a thesis.
Open Badge: Information Literacy - livello base

Courses for Master's students

  • Information Literacy – advanced level: a 6-hour theoretical-practical course providing the advanced skills related to the search, selection, management, use and citation of bibliographic information that are necessary for writing a dissertation or text coherent with scientific-academic standards.
Open Badge: Information Literacy - livello avanzato
