7 Things You Should Read About Badges


Badges represent a way of acknowledging achievements or skill acquisition more granular than a college degree. The resources below provide an overview of the uses of badges and their implications for how individual accomplishments can be awarded, recognized, and shared.

The 7 Things You Should Read About... series from the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI) is a curated set of resources on topics important to the teaching and learning community. Each set of resources is selected to provide a high-level context for a topic, the current state and direction of the topic, and its bearing on higher education.

In addition to the 7 Things briefs, you may find other ELI resources useful in addressing teaching, learning, and technology issues at your institution. To learn more, please visit the ELI Resources page.
