Creating Digital Badges to Incentivize Participation in Faculty Development

Creating Digital Badges to Incentivize Participation in Faculty Development
Badges are more than just participation trophies. Design them to commensurately represent the knowledge and skills gained.
While many institutions have used digital badges as an alternative way to recognize the skills and knowledge developed by students, some are also starting to use this approach in their in-house professional development programs – especially in faculty development programs.
By offering well-designed badges that accompany these programs, you can boost both participation and impact. Join us for this online training and learn how to design your badges to encourage deeper engagement that goes beyond “showing up”. Our instructor, Lindsay Doukopoulos, will share best practices for badging criteria at Auburn University, where 82% of participants chose to earn badges at annual professional development workshops.

Lindsay’s teaching expertise includes experiential, active, and team-based learning in small and large lecture formats. Her research interests include instructional technologies and the use of digital artifacts (e.g., badging, ePortfolios, etc.) to assess and enhance integrated learning, gameful learning, and metacognition for students and faculty.
After a brief overview of our instructor’s faculty development badging program, we’ll walk through several badges Auburn has implemented for faculty. For each badge collection, we’ll address the following:
- How was it designed, and what elements were considered in the design process?
- What are the criteria for earning the badges? Why?
- Who has earned the badges to date?
- What impact did badge earners self-report?
- What kind of data or artifacts did faculty submit to earn this badge / badge constellation? What did these show about how faculty were using what they learned?
We’ll close with a brief exercise that will let you start designing your own badge criteria for a program on your campus.

REEF polling is a proprietary for i>Clickers.
All other contenstors, TopHat, Turning Technologies etc. have the same scheme
methodology of the chemistry teacher:
flipped classroom active learning
quizzes: may not use external resources, graded on accuracy
questions: may use external sources, graded on participation (chemistry teacher wants students to be active and not penalized for wrong answer).
think: students consider the question. submit an answer individually
pair: instructors shows the results (no answer is given); students form groups to discuss their answers; students must agree on the answer
share: students submit an answer individually; the instructor shows the result (an answer is given)
follow up q/s, also standard:
1. what to do, if students don’t have smart phones, 2. CRS integration with CMS 3. data export

Is software installed on the student side to monitor all of their activities on the computer during the exam?
RPNow record’s the student’s desktop throughout the exam and reviewed by our proctors. There is also a lock-down capability to prevent access to 100s of applications that could be used to cheat.

Campus Technology Webcast | Georgetown University Brings Hoyas Together Using Google Apps for Education
Beth Anna Bergsmark, Associate Vice President and Chief Enterprise Architect

use lighweight Google tools versus heavy weight (time consuming to learn) tools. able to connect, participate online. Georgetown policy is “never close campus” and light-weight tools help faculty do that .
even faculty video service integrated with LMS (SCSU = Kaltura + D2L), faculty still are encouraged to use youTube.
migrations lose metadata. Google migration highly automated, but other modernisations, but sites older then 10 years were scrapped.
aside of Google Glass, are there other Google apps used in the medical school. Answers: Google calendar
