5. Identify the completion criteria for any badge you have earned (traditional or digital).
I will share Dr. David Wiley's approach in the open course I tried to complete last year "Introduction to Openness in Education". I still learned a great deal (and still refer to his open course pages) but I didn't earn the badges.
I would have had to complete a different series of tasks for each level of badge - four badges possible - badges are potentially cumulative (see "Earning Course Badges" page for further explanation)
1. Novice (equivalent to a D grade)
- watch video(s) and skim readings and create a short blog post for each of 12 readings
- write a summative blog post linking all 12 topics
2. OpenEd Researcher (Apprentice level - C grade)
- complete all the badge tasks listed for 3 of the 12 topics
- review readings & videos
- find 3 additional scholarly resources and write blog post summarizing
- Write a blog post proposing a research study by which key assumptions of the topic could be (in)validated.(I love this one!)
- write a final blog post linking to your previous postings
3. OpenEd Assessment Designer (Apprentice level - B grade)
- complete for one topic
- Design a badge for the class, including a name, expertise level, and statement of work - complete the work yourself!
- Blog about your proposed badge and explain how it should work. Include your completed badge as an example.
- Monitor class hashtags to see if someone completes your badge tasks and then assess their work and award them the badge - this will earn you your Apprentice badge but there's one more task!
- Write a final blog post linking to previous blog posts
4. OpenEd Evangelist (Journeyman level - A grade)
- Write a blog post containing 5 elements (evidence with references) that will convince someone to adopt opened as an ongoing practice.
- Test your argument on a faculty member (face to face) and write a blog post about your discussion (protecting the identity of the member)
6. Describe a hierarchy or network of badges.
See above! The simple graphics for the badges are from the Iconic collection of CC licensed art and are displayed on the explanatory page.
If he runs it again, I'll be there! It's a great overview of "open" history, intent, philosophies, sustainability, economic models, etc.
