Does micro-credentialing enhance student learning? The invitation to develop a curriculum for chemistry majors and design an advanced chemical information skills badge resulted in greater student satisfaction and a fuller understanding of library resources as well as a more sustainable instruction program for the liaison librarian. The library had struggled with reaching junior and senior students majoring in the sciences, and students had learned about library resources and tools on an as needed basis. The science librarian partnered with chemistry faculty to build information skills into the curriculum throughout the first semester and extend that learning through a series of challenges delivered via the course management system during the second semester. Participants will learn about the process of developing a badge that incorporates information literacy and engages students in active learning.
