Workshop 3: Open up to Open Badging
Joanne Kehoe and Terry Greene (eCampus Ontario)
In this workshop, you will explore, design and issue your first digital, open badge. You will learn about what open badges are and look at how and why various organizations and institutions are using them. You’ll be taken through a creative design process to get you thinking about what kind of badges you might consider for your own context. This will include what kind of badge pathways your learners might find valuable as well as possible partners you could work alongside.
This workshop is geared toward those who are new to these amazing alternative forms of recognition. The examples we’ll look at will help participants see the many ways badges can be used to demonstrate everything from achievement to affiliation. You’ll leave ramped and ready to get started on your own badging system.
*What you need: Laptop strongly recommended.
