Badging for Success

In this webinar, Dr Wayne Gibbons from the Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology (GMIT) goes over how he designed GMIT’s badge scheme, how it was implemented in practice and outlines the impacts that badges had on the degree course.

Dr Gibbons’ interesting thesis The Role, Implementation and Impact of Digital Open Badges on a Civil Engineering Degree is available here. His research discovered 14 distinct roles for badges, 7 enablers for participation in the scheme, and statistically significant increases in motivation due to the badges.
