Workshop: documenting achievements using online badges
26 February 2013
Find out what Mozilla's Open Badges project is all about and whether it's a viable means of charting success and skills development at a one-day workshop.
According to Mozilla’s Open Badges website, “Learning today happens everywhere, not just in the classroom. But it's often difficult to get recognition for skills and achievements that happen outside of school. Mozilla's Open Badges project is working to solve that problem, making it easy for anyone to issue, earn and display badges across the web - through a shared infrastructure that's free and open to all.”
But what does it all mean? What can we do with it? How do badges fit into an HE environment?
Find out more about Mozilla's Open Badges project on Wednesday 20 March, 11am to 4pm.
We have three very knowledgeable presenters lined up:
- Tim Riches, CEO of DigitalMe
- James Michie, Creator/Facilitator of Critical Skills 101
- Ian Tasker, Director of Innovation and Development at SchoolsICT
There will be plenty of room for discussion and creative thinking around the concept of using badges as a means of documenting skills and achievements and lunch will be provided.
Sign up via Eventbrite and hurry as space is limited!
