Badges: New Currency for Professional Credentials

Badges: New Currency for Professional Credentials | Ict4champions | Scoop.it

Help Define the Future of Badge Initiative

 

There is enormous potential for badge initiatives to fundamentally improve the “exchange” of value between educational institutions, learners, and employers. But how is this “currency” defined? Who validates the value of badges? Who defines relevant sets of competencies, and for what purposes? To advance the answers to these and many other questions, we pulled together a team of experts from Mozilla, Blackboard, WCET, and Sage Road Solutions, as well as academic, governmental, civic, and corporate thought leaders, to provide a MOOC that fosters and strengthens emerging badge initiatives: “Badges: New Currency for Professional Credentials.” 

 

This free and open MOOC is designed to help teams of people define their own badge initiatives, appropriate to their own contexts, and work through a series of challenges leading to concrete implementation plans. With this scaffolded learning experience, we aspire to broaden the awareness of the potential of badges, and more importantly, to facilitate the implementation of sustainable badge frameworks that offer concrete structures for validated badge “currency” exchange among educational institutions, learners, and employers.
