Education and training have traditionally been measured in limited ways; course completions and test scores are routinely used as the context through which we describe learning as having taken place. Digital badges provide a more in-depth method for students and workers to demonstrate their knowledge and skills and give employers a new way to assess critical skills such as creativity, communication, teamwork, and adaptability. In this thought-provoking session, Connie Yowell will examine the current state of badges in education and training, exploring what’s working and what opportunities still need to be explored. You will leave this session inspired to reexamine the ways your organization measures and credentializes learning and competency.
