More badges and professional development ideas

More badges and professional development ideas | Linguagem Virtual | Scoop.it

This semester, the CETL is revising it’s system of badges to better acknowledge, challenge, and reward faculty and staff who engage in professional development activities. We’ve developed some new badges, introduced badge levels, and tweaked the way badges are earned. We’ve also expanded the way participants can publicly display their badges.

 

A list of all the badges can be found here. Most of these badges now have three levels. The initial level (which we’re calling the “learn stuff” level) is earned simply by participating in professional development activies. These can be CETL workshops, individual consultations with CETL staff, or even opportunities from other sources, like a conference or webinar. Those who wish to progress to the second level of a badge (the “do stuff” level) will work with the CETL to construct an appropriate challenge card. These cards will simply be things the participant can do to apply why they learned at the “learn stuff” level. Participants can move on to the third level (“evaluate/share stuff”) by constructing and completing another challenge. This one will focus on evaluating the application of the new knowledge and sharing how it worked with others. Participants can share through the CETL blog and website, social media, or more formal research and publication avenues.

 

Pedagogy Map

To help folks get started, we’ve created the Pedagogy Map. This is a wonderful visual representation of the new badges and how they are related. Participants can earn any badge they want whenever they want, but they can also create their own Learning Path. Particpants can sit down with the CETL staff to determine which path best fits their professional development goals. Each Path will be individualized, including challenges developed by the participant and the CETL, and self-paced. The CETL developed Pedagogy Map and new badges can help faculty and staff determine which paths would be best for them, however the CETL will develop and issue badges that are personalized to other requests for professional development. The Pedagogy Map can be viewed below. If you want to see the new badges associated and featured in it you may click http://www.txwescetl.com/pedagogy-map/

Moodle and Open Badges - The world really is your oyster

Luciana Viter's insight:

Twitter is such a great place, not long after my last post hit twitter @MrkarlGoddard  invited me to have a look at his moodle development site where he has installed the +Totara LMS (@totaralms) open badge block.  Don't ask me how he did it, he is way more knowledgeable than me on all this github stuff and anyway I just wanted to play...and play I did....and after a while so did @gideonwilliams  (who is very good at breaking things!)

Lessons PacMan Teaches Us About Motivation (or, why badges are here to stay) | Badgeville Blog | Linguagem Virtual | Scoop.it

The simple concept of do things, level up, get a badge is such a foundation for motivation and human behavior. Do things at work, level up (a promotion), get a badge (window office, nicer car). The more I think about it, the more I’m amazed that retail hasn’t jumped on this in a huge way. They are starting to, but we are still a long way from the level that colleges have instituted over the past 200 years.

How Open Badges Could Really Work In Education

How Open Badges Could Really Work In Education | Linguagem Virtual | Scoop.it

For higher education institutions interested in keeping pace, establishing a digital ecosystem around badges to recognize college learning, skill development and achievement is less a threat and more an opportunity. Used properly, Open Badge systems help motivate, connect, articulate and make transparent the learning that happens inside and outside classrooms during a student’s college years.
