PROPOSAL SUMMARY


PURPOSE & OBJECTIVE

Join us for an examination and discussion of the world of digital badges. What are they? How do you create them? How can you award them? How do you earn them? Why would you want one? What can do you do with them? We will begin this session with a definition of digital badges, their importance, and potential in adult education based on the report The Potential and Value of Using Digital Badges for Adult Learners published by American Institutes for Research and funded by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Vocational and Adult Education (OVAE) and other relevant publications. Participants will examine examples of digital badges and learn how to create, issue, and display badges for their adult learners. There will be an open discussion on the possibilities of what digital badges would mean to learners in documenting their skills, knowledge, and experience that have prepared them to transition to college or career.
