DRES IT Accessibility Badging Program

Participants who attend and complete badging requirements will be awarded digital badges which can be displayed on sites such as LinkedIn or Twitter, or placed in a badge/e-portfolio platform. AITG will be adding courses to the program throughout the year. If you have any questions, please contact Christy Blew at clblew@illinois.edu.
