Rethinking Rewards in the Digital Age: Managing an Ecosystem of Digital Badges

Date(s) - 04/29/2015
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm



Librarians are always searching for new and innovative ways to motivate and engage their target audience. But, what incentives work in today’s digital age? Learn how to use online badges as a new, non-traditional reward to recognize and value learning and participation at your library. This fun and interactive session will discuss digital badges, which are validated, online representations of earned knowledge or skills that can be collected and displayed across many online environments. Learn how to plan, organize, issue, and display your digital badges through open digital badging platforms in order to create and build your own badge ecosystem as both a badge issuer and earner. Participants will even earn a new digital badge for attending the session!
