The Badges for Lifelong Learning community met regularly from 2012 to 2013 to talk about badges, learning, and the way forward. Join the conversation about digital badges by tuning in to this archived series of webinars by experts and new advocates on effective badge design, assessment, badges and the college admissions process, badges and motivation, the sociology of badges, peer project critiques, and open town-hall-style discussions.
The Badges for Lifelong Learning Competition is supported by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, with additional support from the Gates Foundation and in partnership with Mozilla. The Competition is administered by co-located HASTAC teams based at the University of California Humanities Research Institute and John Hope Franklin Humanities Institute at Duke University.
David Theo Goldberg, HASTAC co-founder, discusses Stage 2, the "Design Stage" of the badge system, and covers some best practices.
Carla Casilli, Operations Manager for Mozilla Open Badges project, gives a foundational representation of what we mean when we talk about badges, and gives some examples of how badges can be used in learning environment. HASTAC co-founder Cathy Davidson joins for Q&A session at the end.

During this webinar, the second in our series, we walked prospective applicants through this year's Competition process--reviewing each of the three stages and their requirements, the newly extended timeline, and the application requirements.
We also responded to specific application/process related questions from applicants.
