Badge it! Using Digital Badges to Certify Information Literacy Skills withing Disciplinary Curriculum

1,596 views

Published on

This presentation was given at the 2014 Library Instruction West conference in Portland, Oregon.

As technology in higher education rapidly changes, new pedagogical tools are being tested, developed, and implemented. Digital badges systems are one such tool that can be used to certify student skills and competencies, including information literacy skills. Despite new teaching technologies and pedagogical approaches, it remains difficult for instruction librarians to lead experimentation. As a result, librarians depend on collaborative relationships with disciplinary faculty to experiment with pedagogies and tools like badging. At Portland State University, however, librarians are leading a collaborative digital badges project with Community Health Faculty to develop, deliver, assess, and track student achievements in information literacy. In this session Library and Community Health faculty presenters will discuss the ins-and-outs of integrating digital badges into course curriculum to certify information literacy and other achievements.

  16. 16. A recent article in Yahoo Finance listed the “10 Worst States for Retirement.” The state ranked #1 (i.e., the worst) was Oregon: “Oregon ranks dead last on our list of bad states for retirement for a variety of reasons. Its crime rate, state and local tax burden and cost of living are all higher than the national average. Its annual average temperature is 48.8 degrees, which is colder than the 30-year national average of 52.8 degrees. However, The Beaver State offers spectacular scenery from Mount Hood to the Pacific coast, and plentiful opportunities for hikers to climb its rugged terrain and kayakers to experience its exhilarating white-water rapids -- perhaps unsuitable activities for all but the hardiest retirees.” Faculty Perspectives
