Today I presented Open Badges as part of Open Movement and Open Education at the Open Education Week 2018 #OEWeek. The focus of my presentation was on Open Badges for recognition of Virtual Mobility skills. Recognising Virtual Mobility Skills with Open Badges is the aim of the new Erasmus+ strategic partnership “Open Virtual Mobility”, in which we will be using Open Badges to recognise VM skill sets of students and teachers, e. g. digital, intercultural, professional skills, and reference the skill descriptions embedded in Open Badges with existing competency frameworks. By doing this, we aim to open virtual mobility programs and make virtual mobility skill transparent and reusable in higher education and beyond.
