As part of a pilot of OEglobal microcredentials, we are offering digital badge for advancing awareness of open education to those providing events during Open Education Week in 2022…
The digital badges we are issuing via the Badgr open badge platform contain with in it the verifiable credential with evidence of this achievement. They can be shared anywhere open the badge standard is supported.
Short Summary There are so many events happening, and it is valuable to share what happened at yours. Yes, numbers of participants is helpful, but please include any specific highlights e.g. photos, social media responses, or links to more resources. This need not be more than a paragraph.
This badge can be yours by just replying to this message. Who wants a badge?
We will likely share video excerpts from this session.
As planned, topics were:
Intro to OERs and their relevance in teaching
Creative Commons Licenses and the 5Rs
Options for OER adaptation (including localization) and creation (including prototyping)
Interactions with the 17 participants focused on a perceived difficulty in finding OERs and on some subtleties related to CC licenses (link to moral rights in our legal system as well as in France, what “NC” actually restricts, etc.).
The session was part of our contribution to Quebec’s OER Leaders Network, funded by Quebec’s Ministère de l’Enseignement supérieur (Ministry of Higher Education). That network involves about 40 learning pros from universities and colleges across the province. The agreement was that we would go through the “Bootcamp” version of CC’s certification program together and, in exchange, we would all host CC-related activities during #oeweek. Several of these activities were local to network members’ institutions.
I downloaded my OE Week badge and was able to import it to a passport account I still have from my previous work on the Ontario Extend project for eCampusontario… Badging works as advertised, they are very portable
Oh I agree that @shinta deserves a badge and will make it happen.
This badge process was an experiment where people would reply to the criteria in message at the top of this thread with their response, becoming their evidence link. You’ve done all that is needed and we ought to broaden it to suggest badge earners as you have done.
