SEMIS Learning Badges

An Ecojustice approach to Place-Based Education has many layers and takes many years to develop a deep understanding of and practice. Our new badge system is designed to help SEMIS Coalition members create a curriculum for their own learning that is both purposeful and powerful. If you are not currently a Coalition member, and are inserted in membership, please contact Lisa Voelker or Ethan Lowenstein.

This pilot badge program begins June 2020 and will start small with a set of personally paced learning modules from our choice menu. This menu has been vetted for content and quality, and curated by the SEMIS leadership team. 

To collect a badge: we ask that you complete 2 learning modules for each badge from the choice menu + complete our short online reflection + participate in 1, 1-hour reflection circle where you can reflect and learn with other Coalition members. Some learning modules count towards more than one badge, but require individual reflection be completed. The SEMIS Coaching team is here to assist you in making learning choices and to answer any questions as we go along. Please contact us. 

We are creating this new badge system as a Coalition that honors and combines the strength of its members. Please contribute your knowledge and wisdom by suggesting ways to improve this new badge system as well as recommend your own readings, videos, and activities that are related to the badge themes and propose them for inclusion in.
