Digital badges and micro-credentials offer an entirely new way of recognizing achievements, knowledge, skills, experiences, and competencies that can be earned in formal and informal learning environments. They are an opportunity to recognize such achievements through credible organizations that can be integrated in traditional educational programs but can also represent experience in informal contexts or community engagement. Digital badges are a relatively new technology and therefore acceptance depends on the reputation of the issuer, the level of quality control, as well as the design and implementation in learning environments. But implementing digital badges in learning environments can be challenging, because different forms of assessment and awards processes require new forms of instructional design and a clear understanding of to be achieved competencies. Three guiding questions will be discussed in this webinar: (1) digital badges’ impact on learning and assessment, (2) digital badges within instructional design and technological frameworks, and (3) the importance of stakeholders for the implementation of digital badges.

Microlearning is the buzzword of the day, but do we really know what it is? People seem to be using it to describe a variety of things: it’s performance support, it’s spaced learning, it’s a floorwax and a dessert topping, it’s whatever we want it to be (or will sell)! There are some important possibilities in here, but we have to tease them out. In this session, we’ll go through the possible meanings, make clear what’s real advantage and what’s misleading, and make proposals for what’s needed to really capitalize. Come make sense of microlearning!
