|Year 2: Summary||
Year two of the Badge-Based Learning Pathways FL-TLEF project (BBLP2) transitions from pilot mode to broad implementation. Year one involved three pilot projects, one learning platform, and the cultivation of a badge-interested community across campus. The response from UBC and beyond has been exceptional.
In BBLP2 we propose to expand our technology-integration relationship with CTLT to develop versatile badge capacity across all prevalent UBC platforms (WordPress, Connect and edX) while growing the program of badge exemplars to encompass all significant UBC demographics (undergraduate, graduate, professional and continuing studies students, staff, faculty and residents) as well all Faculties.
Our goal is to achieve critical mass for badge-based learning at UBC. We will accomplish this by harnessing the interest in hand, by systematically identifying, pursuing and supporting implementation opportunities across campus, and by leveraging UBC’s leadership in badges to connect with similar initiatives globally to bring the best emerging ideas here.
