Strategies postsecondary institutions can use to begin offering digital badges: Interview


In a recent interview with The EvoLLLution, Sherri Braxton discusses the strategies that postsecondary institutions can use to enter the world of digital badges. Digital badges are a newer way of providing learners with educational upgrades, and Braxton explains that institutions will need to educate employers on this kind of credentialling and demonstrate how student skills are transferrable to other environments. Braxton recommends starting with a pilot program in an area with clear demand to demonstrate the value of a new credential; engaging faculty and institutional representatives to facilitate buy-in; and encouraging institutions to incorporate employer language in program frameworks.
