    Rewarding efforts in Learning

    In non-formal learning environments, - rewarding learner effort - rewarding instructor effort using the academic credits system is often inappropriate.

    The need arose for a simpler system, lighter to use and manage.

    A Badge

    A digital object that can be transported and reused, representing some form of recognition

    Badges in Learning

    Badges are a form of credential attribution that became popular in informal and non-formal learning contexts, such as on-the-job training in businesses.

    Some academic institutions have already begun to use badges for recognition of formal learning as well, especially at levels lower than a credit.

    Badges in learninng

    Badges are digital objects that represent a reward for learning effort in a simple, non-formal way. The simplest form is the equivalent of a certificate of attendance for a learner or participation as an instructor.

    Learner effort in training

    Could be equated to the usual “measures” of time spent in - Lectures - Practicals - Home Assignments

    Often less than one standard academic credit (ECTS)

    Instructor effort in training

    Designing training events Preparing exercises Preparing lectures Delivering sessions Tutoring learners etc.

    A role for GOBLET

    GOBLET can give a step forward in using credentials for training efforts in Bioinformatics in a systematic way. GOBLET can start by establishing criteria for measuring and tracking learning and competency. Recognised members of the Bioinformatics community can be invited to endorse such criteria.

    Other uses for Badges

    Using badges is a possible way of introducing gamification in a learning environment.

    Badges can create extra motivation in learners. As accumulating badges can be perceived by learners as a stimulus, the whole system can be used as an engagement tool in learning.

    The Value of Badges in Training Badges can become a way of detailing skills acquired in training events, but also in distance and e-learning.

    A generalist badge can testify presence in a course, just like a Certificate of Presence.

    A specialist badge can testify exposure to a practical exercise at the acquaintance, intensive or expert (mastery) levels.

    Critical issues in a badge system The attribution of badges follows defined criteria. Credible issuers establish these criteria upfront and those can be backed by endorsement by known experts.

    The definition of the criteria is the most critical point for the success of a badge system, ultimately judged by the measurable frequency at which they are displayed.

    Criteria Using inspiration form peers and other sources, GOBLET can create a set of consistent criteria, carefully defining their scope of application.

    Such an effort can be spearheaded by a task force within GOBLET, capitalising on the documented work of its committees, namely - Learning, Education & Training - Standards

    Access mechanism If GOBLET comes forward with a set of criteria, the next step will be to take the roles of Badge Provider and Badge Displayer.

    For that, GOBLET needs to add a bit of open source software to its website. Mozilla Open Badges API and the Open Badges Drupal modules are natural choices.

    Expanding Education and Workforce Opportunities Through Digital Badges http://all4ed.org/reports-factsheets/expanding-education-and-workforce- opportunities-through-digital-badges/

    The report defines digital badges as “credentials that represent skills, interests, and achievements earned by an individual through specific projects, programs, courses, or other activities.” A credible badge stores information online through a digital hyperlink about the associated skills, as well as what projects and tasks the badge holder completed to obtain it. This report explores digital badges and how they can be used to improve student learning and outcomes, as well as expand vocational and interest-based skills for learners of all age.
