I am on my way to the Summit for Online Leadership and Strategy in San Antonio. This event is hosted by UPCEA (University Professional and Continuing Education Association) and the American Council on Education. Lawrence Ragan is chairing a panel discussion on open digital badges. Mike Palmquist from Colorado State and Jason Fish from Purdue are on the panel and that should be a big draw as they are doing really interesting stuff.
I was happy to be invited because I think that the Summit will be a good place to find potential collaborators for the new Open Badges in Higher Education project. As I elaborate below, my team is funded for two years to support people who are getting innovative badge systems operational in higher education. We can offer quite a bit in terms of getting systems up and running, and documenting progress and projects in our open case library.
