Past, Present, Future

Hello Pittsburg (springsteen during Clevland)

Camel curated journey

How many of you have attended an Unlocking Badges session?

Does anyone in the room work at at higher education institution, have higher ed clients, or ever worked in higher ed?

Designing badges for evidence presented in curated learning ePortfolios, endorses and verifies the claims that a learner makes in this digital narrativethese claims are made against badge criteria and standards that have been co-designed by key stakeholders in the learning journey.

Thompson Rivers University is a public university in British Columbia, Canada. Located about a four hour drive from Vancouver. 15K residential, at 12K distance and online students. Dartmouth College is a private college founded in 1769 with about 4k undergrad and 2k graduate students. Notre Dame, you have probably heard of, a private institution located in Indiana with 11k students. Association for Authentic, Experiential and Evidence Based Learning or AAEEBL, has been the professional organization supporting the practice of ePortfolios in education.

Badging a Course: Science and Religion in American Media

@mgoudz | #LSBadges | CC-BY-SA

4 learning outcomes 4 badge tracks Badge becomes Dartmouth College: In winter quarter of 2015 the course, Science and Religion in American Media that incorporated MediaKron activities within an overall course badging scheme. The learning objectives in the course were distributed across four key areas: digital media analysis, digital scholarship, critical engagement, and cooperative leadership. We used MediaKron in three areas and badges in all four.5

Digital Media Analysis

Complete in-class workshopComplete supervised assignmentComplete collaborative assignmentComplete feedback assignmentComplete reflection assignment

Each of the four course learning objectives corresponded to a learning pathway. A basic learning objective of the course was to gain competence in digital media acquisition, production, curation, and composition. The Digital Media Analysis outcome had five steps or milestones to complete and earn this badge. First, students attended a hands-on intro to MediaKron workshop to learn the basics. Second, students did individual in-class assignments in which they added images, video, and text on a theme of their choice to MediaKron. Third, they collaborated on their own time in small groups to create a Story that curated selected images, video and text from each group members prior assignment into a common theme. Fourth, each student provided feedback on a survey about their experience. Finally, each student made a 1-minute long video in which they reflected on their experience with MediaKron and how it affected their learning and competence in dealing with digital media.6

What is this? - transcriptWhat does this tell us about a learning experience? grades How owns this data? the school

The problem we are trying to address: The traditional transcript looks like this. It has course titles, dates, credits, and final grade. It says nothing about the course, the students work, and what their prior or following learning might be. Learner pathways.

Designing open and digital badges for evidence presented in curated learning ePortfolios, endorses and verifies the claims that a learner makes in this digital narrativethese claims are made against badge criteria and standards that have been co-designed by key stakeholders in the learning journey. Dartmouth College designed and developed badging to track the portion of a course that focused on digital scholarship skills where students could receive both a grade and a badge for each assignment, which would earn a progress badge, and completion of an entire training sequence or practice sequence would earn a completion badge. You will learn how the University of Notre Dame and Thompson Rivers University are now using ePortfolios and digital badges to allow learners to chart their own pathway through their learning career.
