Following on from our initial event in January, this will be the first of a regular Open Badges meetups.
Our Manchester group is aimed at taking an overall look at Open Badges and each meeting will include one or all of the following;
- Demonstration workshops where you can earn Badges
- Help creating Open Badges for your project / organisation
- Discussions on the merits and logistics of Badges for community/ institutional accreditation, and overcoming difficulties of online assesment
- If you are an educator and interested in seeing if you can ‘badgify’ one of your lessons or workshops. Get in touch with us and we will help you to do this.
We will also look at some of the existing tools and communities that are working with Open Badges including the P2PU – Peer to Peer University. We will also be working with the MDDA to set up a test Open Badges server infrastructure which we will be testing out.
This event is part of meetups co-ordinated via Manchester NetSquared (#mcrn2)- a network of people interested in make sure non-profits can get the best out web technology.
