In this session, you will learn about what Open Badges are and look at how and why various institutions and organizations are using badges as a way of rethinking recognition. You will see various badge systems, pathways and the learning design process' behind the badges to get you thinking about what kind of badges you might consider for your own context. This session is geared toward those who are new to these amazing alternative forms of recognition. The examples we'll look at will help participants see the many ways badges can be used to recognize everything from achievements to knowledge and skills to affiliations and values. We'll also take a peek at what's been going on under the CanCred Factory hood during the eCampusOntario Open Badge evaluation period. We'll show you how the creation and issuing of badges happens and get you thinking about possible partners and frameworks you could work with. You''ll leave ramped and ready to get started on your own badging system...and possibly with an open badge that you've earned!
