The Building Your Changemaker Profile at CQUniversity micro-credential builds on the iChange course offered as an introduction to social innovation at CQUniversity. The content and activities will help you understand, reflect on and develop your own unique Changemaker profile. This is important in social innovation and changemaking activities as we seek to understand ourselves in relation to the world, uncovering what we are passionate about, and where we might be best placed to contribute to positive changemaking. You will learn about the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, and work through a self assessment process to enable you to identify your own changemaking archetype, find your “why” using the Japanese principle of Ikigai, and develop a Changemaker mindset. 

This micro-credential will help you develop the following CQU Social Innovation Mindsets:

  1. Empathy & self-awareness
  2. Collaborative leadership
  3. Systems perception
  4. Deep curiosity
  5. Creativity and imagination.

This online micro-credential provides a non-creditable micro-credential and digital badge which can be shared to your social networks and displayed in your professional portfolio.

Our micro-credentials are aligned to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
