ELI Annual 2013 > Giving Credit Where and When It's Due: Adventures in Digital Badges and Microcredentials

Groups not traditionally in the degree-granting realm are upending how (and by whom) credit is issued. We will look at how programs outside higher education—as well as some pioneering projects in the postsecondary sphere—are adopting microcredentials and badge-empowered learning. Digital badges are more nimble than their cousins, diplomas and degrees. They allow sharing of evidence of skills and knowledge acquired through a much wider range of life activity, at a more granular level, and at a pace that keeps up with individuals who are always learning, even outside the classroom. What is the real opportunity in education for badges, and how do digital badges peacefully coexist with grades, transcripts, and degrees? The speaker will draw on firsthand experience with groups like the Smithsonian, YMCA of Greater New York, the New York City Department of Education, Yale University, and EDUCAUSE.
