If you’ll be in Boston on March 5, please join us for a 2014 Pre-Conference Workshop focusing on badges for lifelong learning research.
Who: Anyone in the digital badges and learning community
What: A 3-hour workshop to learn about current research (including the Badges and Badging Development Research grantees), where participants will exchange ideas and begin drafting a badge research agenda.
Where: The St. James room at the Fairmont Copley Plaza, Boston, MA
When: Wednesday, March 5, 12:30-3:30 p.m.
Badge research is important for practitioners, for communications, and also for funding. What do we need to focus on as a field? What disciplines are contributing? What has been done so far? Who is asking for what, and why? What research is most helpful to which communities?
Join HASTAC and grantees from the HASTAC/MacArthur Foundation Badging and Badge System Development Research Competition as they discuss emerging questions in the field of badges for lifelong learning, and contribute your ideas to a research agenda via a hands-on workshop session.
Planning to attend? Please RSVP to Hilary Culbertson at contact[at]hastac.org.
Please note that lunch will not be provided.
