“Let’s talk about competence – and badge it!”

Open Badges have been around for some years as a digital credentials system.
The badge movement is gaining momentum in all areas of learning and education.

With the help of of Nordplus Adult project funding, a group of Open Badge experts in non-formal adult education have developed a systematic approach and created a set of nine badges to validate certain adult educator key competences. They have learnt a lot about criteria, validation procedures, descriptors, quality control and procedures along the way.

Now it’s time to share. During a one day workshop in Göteborg on 17 May 2018 all secrets will be revealed. And you are invited.

The programme includes discussions on how to best describe competences, what badge systems to use, how to develop good criteria and how you get from your idea to a ready-made badge. You are most welcome to participate! The day is open to all. If you have created a badge (or several) or are in the process of making them, this day is for you!

This is a practical workshop. You will get the most out of the day by preparing a little. Consider what you would like to recognise by using open badges (a specific competence, participation, or something else). Think about who you want to badge (learners, teachers, volunteers or others).

You will be able to create and test your badge(s). You will get feedback on your criteria, design and scope. You will learn about badge ecosystems, badge platforms and badge creation steps.

The more you prepare the better your badge will be. Once you register we will send you a guide and a checklist to help you get ready.

The workshop is free of charge. Participants must pay their own travel costs and lunch.
