This week, the team at the University of Southampton organised an excellent Open Badge conference, which I really enjoyed taking part in. Doug Belshaw (his slides are here) and Carla Casilli were keynoting.
“Let’s just badge everything” is probably not the best strategy in getting up and running with micro-credentials.
Here are two questions worth considering:
- What (behaviours, commitment, recognition…) would this badge help us encourage that we struggle to encourage currently? and
- Why would an earner of this badge show it to someone else?
