Portfolios and Open Badges: A curated learning journey

668 views

Published on

Designing open and digital badges for evidence presented in curated learning ePortfolios, endorses and verifies the claims that a learner makes in this digital narrative—these claims are made against badge criteria and standards that have been co-designed by key stakeholders in the learning journey. Dartmouth College designed and developed badging to track the portion of a course that focused on digital scholarship skills where students could receive both a grade and a badge for each assignment, which would earn a progress badge, and completion of an entire training sequence or practice sequence would earn a completion badge.

In this session, you will learn how the University of Notre Dame and Thompson Rivers University are now using ePortfolios and digital badges to allow learners to chart their own pathway through their learning career. You will learn about three case studies that explore badges, and ePortfolios that show evidence for a range of competencies and capabilities through artifacts.

In this session, you will learn:

To examine, through case studies, how open and digital badge practice can build and leverage off ePortfolio research
To investigate what badge claims look like in evidence-based ePortfolios
To share and present the opportunities for open and digital badge researchers and practitioners

    Camel curated journey

    How many of you have attended an Unlocking Badges session?

    Does anyone in the room work at at higher education institution, have higher ed clients, or ever worked in higher ed?


    Designing badges for evidence presented in curated learning ePortfolios, endorses and verifies the claims that a learner makes in this digital narrative—these claims are made against badge criteria and standards that have been co-designed by key stakeholders in the learning journey.

  • Thompson Rivers University is a public university in British Columbia, Canada. Located about a four hour drive from Vancouver. 15K residential, at 12K distance and online students. Dartmouth College is a private college founded in 1769 with about 4k undergrad and 2k graduate students. Notre Dame, you have probably heard of, a private institution located in Indiana with 11k students. Association for Authentic, Experiential and Evidence Based Learning or AAEEBL, has been the professional organization supporting the practice of ePortfolios in education.
  • I worked on a course, Science and Religion in American Media.

    What is the lasting evaluation, something that you can show years later, of what you learned in the course?
  • 4 learning outcomes
    4 badge tracks
    Badge becomes
    Dartmouth College: In winter quarter of 2015 the course, Science and Religion in American Media that incorporated MediaKron activities within an overall course badging scheme. The learning objectives in the course were distributed across four key areas: digital media analysis, digital scholarship, critical engagement, and cooperative leadership. We used MediaKron in three areas and badges in all four.
  • Each of the four course learning objectives corresponded to a learning pathway. A basic learning objective of the course was to gain competence in digital media acquisition, production, curation, and composition. The Digital Media Analysis outcome had five steps or “milestones” to complete and earn this badge. First, students attended a hands-on intro to MediaKron workshop to learn the basics. Second, students did individual in-class assignments in which they added images, video, and text on a theme of their choice to MediaKron. Third, they collaborated on their own time in small groups to create a Story that curated selected images, video and text from each group member’s prior assignment into a common theme. Fourth, each student provided feedback on a survey about their experience. Finally, each student made a 1-minute long video in which they reflected on their experience with MediaKron and how it affected their learning and competence in dealing with digital media.
  • What is this? - transcript
    What does this tell us about a learning experience? – grades
    How owns this data? – the school


    The problem we are trying to address: The traditional transcript looks like this. It has course titles, dates, credits, and final grade. It says nothing about the course, the student’s work, and what their prior or following learning might be. Learner pathways.
  • Notre Dame still has transcripts and grades.
  • “A collection of authentic and diverse evidence, drawn from a larger archive.” The National Learning Infrastructure Initiative (NLII)

    “A purposeful collection of student work that illustrates efforts, progress, and achievement in one or more areas [over time]. The collection must include: student participation in selecting contents, the criteria for selection, the criteria for judging merit, and evidence of student self-reflection.” The Northwest Evaluation Association

    “In addition to a resume or college transcript, more than four in five employers say an electronic portfolio would be useful to them in ensuring that job applicants have the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in their company or organization”.

  • Student learning portfolios are owned by the student and stay with the student from course to course.
    Student ownership of their private learning space -- the portfolio -- can help students own their own learning and have more of a stake in education.
    Students can review their own work evidence and provide interpretations of the evidence, and explain how they have grown or changed.
