Marjo Joshi, Online Teaching Specialist from Future Learning Design team at Turku University of Applied Sciences, and Leena Seilonen, Online Teaching Specialist from Learning Environment Services at TUAS, share their experiences in using Open Badges for accrediting skills and sharing expertise as part of a professional development in online teaching. In early 2015, TUAS had started offering their teachers training in online pedagogy and technology through eTUBE professional development course, and took on a pilot to use Open Badges as a means of supporting professional development, accrediting skills and sharing expertise.
