This week is Open Education Week 2018 and Open Badges are part of the OE ecosystem.
Open Education Week is coordinated by the The Open Education Consortium:
“Open Education Week’s goal is to raise awareness about free and open educational opportunities that exist for everyone, everywhere, right now. We want to highlight how open education can help people meet their goals in education, whether that’s to develop skills and knowledge for work, supporting formal studies, learning something new for personal interest, or looking for additional teaching resources.”
Open Education Week 2018 issues an Open Education Badge (see below) and hosts events dedicated to Open Badges, for example:
- Open Credentials and Radical Openness by Michal Kaderka
- Open Badges and Open Virtual Mobilities by Ilona Buchem
Possibly there are more contributions dedicated to Open Badges / Open Credentials as parts of the local workshops, e.g. like my own online presentation, which is part of the Open Education Week workshop at Polytechnic University of Timisoara Center.
