  • Do I have to show up for class?

    Attendance during facilitated time is highly recommended as it provides the most value to the microcredentials with time to learn from industry experts, network with classmates, and deeper understanding of content. However, attendance is not mandatory and all sessions are recorded and posted afterwards on CANVAS.
  • How am I evaluated?

    What makes a TALENT microcredential different is the final assessment.

A facilitator will evaluate the final assignment and award a digital badge if the final assignement is completed successfully.
