Learning Technology Group - Digital Badges: Awarding Accomplishments Digitally

Time: 3/12/2014 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Location: Miller Hall 56

Members of our campus community are welcome to join the "Learning Technology Group" monthly discussion aimed at increasing our campus-wide understanding and use of technology as a teaching tool. All Western faculty, staff, and interested students are welcome to attend.

The focus of this session, lead by John Farquhar (ATUS), will be on the potential of using digital badges as a method for showing earned and validated certifications or accomplishments. A digital badge is just what is sounds like: a visual marker—just like in the Scouts—of an accomplishment. But instead of a fabric badge, the digital badge can appear online and be used in a variety of ways in our digital world. Come learn about the possibilities!

The Learning Technology Group at Western is an ongoing collaboration of the team at the Teaching, Learning, & Technology Faculty Development Office (Academic Technology and User Services/Center for Instructional Innovation and Assessment), to engage faculty in implementing and evaluating new technologies for teaching.
