Learning today happens everywhere, not just in the classroom. But it's often difficult to get recognition for skills and achievements that happen outside of school. Mozilla's Open Badges project is working to solve that problem, making it easy for anyone to issue, earn and display badges across the web -- through a shared infrastructure that's free and open to all.
But what does it all mean? What can we do with it? How do badges fit into an HE environment?
Find out more about Mozilla's Open Badges project on Wednesday, 20th March, 11am to 4pm.
We have three very knowledgeable presenters lined up for you:
- Tim Riches, CEO DigitalMe
- James Michie, Creator/Facilitator of Critical Skills 101
- Ian Tasker, Director of Innovation and Development, SchoolsICT
Lunch will be provided.
