Methods of assessment

[edit source]

Badging professional development

[edit source]

Most professional development happens on the job and informally. This project aims to develop a simple method of accounting for this form of professional learning. Open Badging seems to be a system that enables peer to peer assessment, while also helping to make more clear the sorts of things being learned, and a way to manage and easily see who has learner what and with evidence. Credly is a recent web service positioning to help facilitate open badging. This project will experiment with Credly by issuing badges to participants through that service, and determining what benefit the platform and open badging generally has toward making informal learning more tangible and measurable.

The range of badges in this program will consist of 4 domain badges, with a range of explicit skills badges under them. As follows:

*Please note, the professional objectives above do not reflect any formal or official statement of professional competencies for people working at La Trobe University. This page is created to help build a peer support network around a suggested range of skills and tasks that are seen to be relevant to working in the Faculty of Health Sciences at La Trobe, with a deliberate view toward generic skills that may be relevant to any number of other organisations. As such, the list will change and expand as we gain more involvement, insight and progress on this project.
