Badges as Micro Credentials

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Badges are becoming increasingly acceptable as evidence of credentials and measures of achievement. Users of Duolingo can share their badges to LinkedIn. Fitbit owners can earn badges for exercising to share with friends and Audible owners can earn badges simply for listening to audiobooks. Badges can give a sense of achievement, progress, and recognition. These are powerful tools can be used to help motivate students and staff.
This hands-on workshop introduces participants to using badges as micro-credentials for students and staff. By the end, participants will be able to use badges as a tool for student/staff recognition, marking progress, and celebrating achievement. The focus will be on identifying the psychology of badging, creating lists of achievements, and tools to help create badges graphically. This is a fun, hands-on workshop that will have actionable results for all participants.
