The first day is designed to you a foundation built on theory and solid design principles. You will delve deeper into the open digital badging ecosystem through an interactive session that helps you design and develop an operational badging program within your organization. Four weeks later, you will have the opportunity to showcase your open digital badge and detailed plans for a badging program. In this final half-day session, you will have 15 minutes to present your finished badge and plans for further program development and to see other participants' progress. At the end of this session, you will be assessed on proficiency based on instructor evaluation of the open digital badge and proposed program.
