Badges are digital shareable recognitions that are being used by the Open SUNY Center for Online Teaching Excellence (COTE) to acknowledge, commemorate, recognize, endorse, honor, award, validate, certify and authorize various activities, behaviors, events, individuals, and accomplishments.
Open SUNY COTE is designing sets of badges that document membership in the online community of practice, level of engagement in the community, and online teaching competency. The badging system is tied to the Open SUNY Fellow roles, is designed to guide development as online practitioners from novice to master, and supports networking, sharing, and mentoring across the entire community of online practitioners. The badging system supports and reinforces a culture of continuous improvement in online teaching practices and course design, provides recommended learning paths and levels, and promotes opportunities for various types of community engagement.
This group is for those interested in discussing badging in professional development in general, and for those interested in discussing the Open SUNY COTE badging program.
