Open Badges UBC, a Library-run initiative, is seeking new projects to test badge-based learning as an emerging technology at UBC.

Flexible learning has been a key focus of the teaching and learning portfolio at UBC over the last few years. Its vision is to enhance student engagement through the further integration of technology into instructional methods. The Open Badges project is doing just that through the use of digital symbols that students can collect.

These badges capture an individual’s accomplishments, skills, qualities, or participation in various learning experiences. They are then displayed across online platforms for students to demonstrate their competencies in a variety of learning environments.

Learn more about past and upcoming projects and apply to join the pilot where participants will have access to studio-based support, workshops and resources. 

For more information, please contact open.badges@ubc.ca.
