With this many folks, it might be easier to raise your hand if you want to ask a question…or post it in the chat…

Great point! Badges are vehicles for making ASSERTIONS.We are *asserting* that our badge earners have xyz skills/accomplishments/competencies/etc

Are there any institutions adding general education digital badges on their academic transcript? What is the benefit? If not, are you awarding the badge(s) and ownership rests with the learner to mobilize them to desired recipients?

I think the states want it to track labor and qualification stats.

Hello Shelby, how are you doing?

Thanks Meagan. What type of feedback are you receiving from students? Is it beneficial for them and are you seeing an increase in the volume of transcripts requested because you include badges?

Karen, you’ve it the bullseye on upcoming research questions for us. We have anecdotal evidence but need better data on what you are asking.
Meagan Treadway

Karen, I think it's too early to say. We really only started doing this in the last year. We are seeing an increase in the development of badges and the number of students seeking them and then completing them. But, I think it's too early to assess much further downstream yet.

These are research questions that AACRAO and members will be exploring because they are most common questions…

As people encounter vendors, this Digital Promise resource is really helpful for questions we can ask specific to inclusivity and equity https://digitalpromise.dspacedirect.org/bitstream/handle/20.500.12265/154/Inclusive%20Design%20Principles%20for%20Learning%20and%20Employment%20Records%20Apr2022.pdf?sequence=1&isAllowed=y

The first JFF resource link is another I hope that lots of people check out! Really smart white paper that can inform us with smart functional requirements in RFPs
