Last Week Phil (@PhilVincent) and I had the opportunity to delivery a workshop at the 19th Annual SEDA conference, entitled ‘Opportunities and challenges for academic development in a post-digital age’.
The workshop titled ‘Badges? We don’t need no stinkin’ badges’ highlighted how the open badge eco-system, could be used for motivation and recognition of staff CPD activities & innovative educational practices. It also considered strategies & techniques for enhance their credibility and adoption, by mapping Open Badges to existing frameworks (such as the UKPSF, SEDA Values, or Vitae Framework), adding to the transferability & recognition of the awards across HE.
