Badge

I am interested to read about PSIs across BC that are developing/promoting Badges for competency-based courses. A post today in Academica profiles developments at Lethbridge U about 

 'badges' for career-oriented/work transition credentials. It would be helpful to know what sector infrastructure (and participating endorsement bodies) Colleges and Universities are working with in Canada to develop these transferable, portable skills. There is a real opportunity for us to collaborate so that we do not duplicate across institutions. LMF
