Gamification Community of Practice - Badgesplaining: Digital Badges & Micro-credentials at CU Boulder

With Noah Geisel, Micro-credentials Program Manager, University of Colorado Boulder.

In this interactive and discussion-driven session, Micro-credentials Program Manager Noah Geisel, will join us to share an overview of what exactly micro-credentials and badges are (and aren’t!) at CU, who can propose new programs, and how to go about proposing.  He will detail the opportunity of metadata within digital badges and the transformative nature of what this makes possible in our storytelling about who students are as learners and achievers.  Also, specific to our affinity group, the session will address the inherent as well as overt possibilities for incorporating gamification in implementing this credentialing approach.  There will be ample time for discussion and Q&A.

Noah founded and coordinates the annual Badge Summit Conference and is a lecturer at the University of Colorado Denver. As a community organizer and champion of Digital Badge Credentials, he co-founded #BadgeChat and seeks to amplify others’ efforts to change the world.
