Career Readiness Modules & Badges

Created With Faculty & Students In Mind

The Minnesota State IT Center of Excellence has heard from numerous employers that graduates must possess both technical skills and “career readiness” skills to be successful in their jobs.

In response, the ITCOE offers eight Modules to help our faculty teach these important soft skills that can help students in future job searches and careers.

  • Easy to Use
    Built in D2L, offering you ease of use and the ability to quickly adapt the content to a course.
  • Resume Differentiator
    Research continues to show that employers are often underwhelmed by students lack of critical skills.
  • Proven Success
    Derived from Education Design Lab 21st Century Skills, used by dozens of other higher education institutions.
Digital Badges

Each completed Career Readiness module can be combined with a 360 assessment to earn the participant a digital badge to upload onto online career platforms (like Linked In) for visibility to potential employers.

Janet Johnson - IT / Cybersecurity Faculty

``It was seamless to incorporate the Collaboration and Teamwork Module into my course. Once the Module was imported it took little effort to customize to my course layout. After completing the Module, the students seemed to have a greater level of empathy and respect for each other.``

Vickie McLain - CIS Instructor & Cyber Defense Coach

``The Oral and Written Communication Module is an easy way to introduce communications skills into any class and can be directly imported into a D2L shell. Watching these students respond to simulated work situations in their communications videos allowed me to get to know them better and to be able to offer communication tips that would not have been possible previously.``
