Posted: June 5, 2014

Wed, June 18, 2014 • 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM • https://meeting.austin.utexas.edu/coerll-june-webinars

Badges are often seen as a way to recognize learning, represent skills, and demonstrate accomplishments. Furthermore, digital badges can also be a mechanism for motivating participation and collaboration by increasing the potential for recognition and enhancing one’s identity and reputation. One of the most interesting applications of badges, however, is the potential to utilize them as a system of alternative credentialing and as competency-based signals of achievement. 

This series will provide participants with a solid grounding in the concept and practice of badging while also exploring a wide variety of badging initiatives, take a closer look at a variety of new tools and platforms that enable educators to create and issue badges, and delve into services that will be not only developing a robust badge system, but also ensure effective implementation. Each session offers one hour of CPE credit.

  • The first session, "Introduction to Digital Badges," will help answer the question “Where do I start?,” providing participants with a solid grounding in the concept and practice of badging while also exploring a wide variety of badging initiatives, take a closer look at a variety of new tools and platforms that enable educators to create and issue badges, and delve into services that will be not only developing a robust badge system, but also ensure effective implementation. You can view the recorded version here.
  • The second session, "How to Create and Issue Badges," will be held Wed, June 18, 2014, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM and will highlight some of the tools and platforms like OpenBadges.me and the Mozilla Badge Kit that can assist educators in design badges. Moreover, we unpack the badge ecosystem and look at services like Badg.us that handle the issuing and management of earned digital badges.
