Open Badges in Higher Education: Disruptive, Desirable, and Democratic

Publicada em

Five years since the first pilot, there is now a flourishing ecosystem of (millions of) Open Badges putting learners in control of their digital credentials. Existing purveyors of qualifications have been both excited and concerned about what this 'disruption' means for them. What can the Open Badges Infrastructure (OBI) offer? How can/should educational institutions respond? And what are the best places to start?

In this opening keynote, Dr. Doug Belshaw will use his experience in all sectors of education, at Mozilla, and as a consultant helping organisations deal with these issues, to articulate clear steps forward for educational institutions looking to get to grips with Open Badges.

  9. 1. Open Badges are disruptive
  10. “Every age has a theory of rising and falling, of growth and decay, of bloom and wilt: a theory of nature. Every age also has a theory about the past and the present, of what was and what is, a notion of time: a theory of history… Our era has disruption, which, despite its futurism, is atavistic. It’s a theory of history founded on a profound anxiety about financial collapse, an apocalyptic fear of global devastation, and shaky evidence.” (Jill Lepore, The New Yorker)
  11. “Open systems are open. For people used to dealing with institutions that go out of their way to hide their flaws, this makes these systems look terrible at first.” (Clay Shirky)
  12. 2. Open Badges are desirable
  13. 3. Open Badges are democratic
  14. “The world of credentialing is evolving. Degrees have long been considered the basic unit of educational currency. But it appears that we’re experiencing an accelerating shift away from the gold standard of degrees and toward a more inclusive credentialing world that embraces badges, microcredentials and nanodegrees and is based on a market-driven floating exchange rate.” (Carla Casilli)

  22. Example 2: Open Research Badges http://openresearchbadges.org
  23. Example 3: City & Guilds http://techbac.com/how-it-works “By using the Mozilla Open Badge framework, TechBac rewards learners who demonstrate their skills and competencies in the form of digital badges. These badges can be easily transported and shared via social media or collected into the learner’s online CV builder.”
  24. 5. Conclusion
  25. Important points to note about Open Badges (1) ● Open Badges are not controlled by any one organisation. The technology that underpins the whole system (the Open Badges Infrastructure, or OBI) is a free, open-source and run for the world wide community. ● Open Badges are evidence-based. The information about who, why, and for what the badge was issued is hard-coded into it as metadata. ● Open Badges are stackable. Badges from one organisation’s system can build upon ones from another system. This creates a rich ecosystem that individuals can use to build the story of their skills, knowledge, and experience.
  26. Important points to note about Open Badges (2) ● Open Badges are transferable. Badges earned in one environment can be shared in another. Although Mozilla’s badge backpack is often used as the default place to send badges, they can be stored anywhere — including on your own computer, if you prefer. ● Open Badges put the user in control. Badges are private until they are published by the user. They provide an easy way to show a portfolio of skills without third parties having to wade through a mountain of data.
