Seminar on Open Badges as a validation tool in adult learning


If you are interested in validation this event is for you! The Nordplus project Open Badge for Adult Eductors is offering a half-day event showcasing why and how Open Badges can be used to validate and make visible learning ourcomes, competencies and skills. 

We will present some cases showing how and why Open Badges can be useful, we will sit down with you and help you get started, we will chart unknown territory together, discussing what the future may hold in store for validation.

The event is organized in two parts:

1. a streamed event where you can hear about how badges are used in non-formal adult education and volunteering, and

2. workshops on how to create your own badges and how to earn a badge to display your skills as an educator. you will also hear about the results of the Open badges for Adult Educators Nordplus project.

In the first part you will hear about trends in Open badges, about how the guides and Scouts of Finland are using badges to transform volunteering into competences, and how badges can give added value to folkbildning.

This event is useful for teachers, principals, education professionals (planning officers, specialists, administrators), people active in NGOs, employers, social partners, staff in Universities and VETs.
