  29. 29. Value and Recognition Credibility comes from the reputation of the issuing organisation and the value of the criteria for the badges on offer Do you have or can you get buy-in and official representation from your school or organization? Otherwise, it's a personally-awarded badge that would only carry intrinsic value for you. I faced this situation when trying to implement badging for professional development of higher ed faculty and staff-I could easily get my department's ok and buy-in, but not the larger university affiliation, and so, the badges we issued would only be meaningful to our department and those that chose to recognize our department's efforts. It didn't carry the same weight, and was not very portable. https://learn.canvas.net/courses/231/discussion_topics/553 from the badging course at Canvas Network 1
