How could you use Open Badges at Bradford?

#bfdconf16Discuss with the person(s) next to you:Where, in your context, might you issue Open Badges? Can you arrange the badges into groups of similar badges - this might be based around a theme, a subject a course or other similar over-arching cluster of related badges?

Draw a representation of your badge cluster / constellation / pathway in the boxTextwall: 07537 402 400. Start with TEL

#bfdconf16 Choose one of your badge ideas from your earlier discussionUse the JISC Badge Content Design sheet to develop that badge furtherTextwall: 07537 402 400. Start with TEL

On Slide: Open Badges: the what, why how

.

The Why:Give people recognition for the skills and achievements they have 3D CV cv is a bunch of claims but badges verify themYour students/researchers are more than their grades, or more than the final output of their research

The How: Design the badge (offline)Choose the right issuing systemWhere can your badge recipients store their badges?

Digital Skills Champion

Design Process

Focus on the highlighted areasIf you cant think of an example, use the Digital Skills Champion (staff or student).

Thinking about your badge requirementsHow will you design the image? How will you issue them? Moodle, Credly, Wordpress, Open Badge Factory or Open Badge AcademyWill the process be automated? Does the earner apply for the badge? How resource intensive will the process be? Where will earners store them? Backpack, Open Badge Passport

Open Badge Design Principles Documentation (DPD) Project

EDUCAUSE / Indiana University project (2012-2014), published June 2015

Analysing how badges were used forrecognising, assessing, motivating and studying learning,and the intended, enacted and formalised practices within each of the projects.

Open Badge Design Principles Documentation (DPD) Project2012-2014BADGES WORK BETTER IN SOME PLACES THAN OTHERS

BADGES WORK BETTER WHERE CONTENT AND TECHNOLOGY ALREADY EXISTS

BADGES WORK BETTER AS INFORMAL CREDENTIALS

BADGES WORK BETTER WHEN INTERNALLY VALUED

BADGES WORK BETTER WHEN THEY OFFER UNIQUE CLAIMS AND EVIDENCE

BADGES WORK BETTER WHERE THE LEARNING IS SOCIAL AND NETWORKED
