Design Your Assessment
Learning Design for Badges in 4 Steps
Your Task: Identify the learning goals that folks will master in your learning project, and post the criteria for the Badge below.
Best Practices on Learning Design
- Your course has "learning goals"--or things you intend for folks to learn.
- The project they make in your course should demonstrate an understanding of those skills.
- So the Badge for your course should reference those learning goals.
Example: if you course is on "Mastering Sonnets" the final project might be an original sonnet. A relevant Badge for the course might be "Sonnet Bard" which has a mastery of of iambic pentameter, end rhymes and originality as the criteria.
Nuts and Bolts of Making a Stellar Badge
Step 1: Identify Learning Goals:. What do you want folks to learn in your course?
Step 2: Create Badge title: Navigate on over to badges.p2pu.org and give your Badge a snappy title that people might want to apply for.
Step 3: Description: Think of this as a subtitle. The following info would be appropriate here:
- Is this Badge for a P2PU course? If so, pop the link in there.
- Is the Badge associated with a School (like School of Open) or an Organization (like Mozilla)?
- Is the Badge for an event like a Hackathon or a Meetup?
Step 4: Criteria:: There are many pathways to a successful project. Which skills in particular should the learner show that they have mastered? Examples:
- Successfully creating a circuit schematic with proper resistors
- Defining Creative Commons licenses correctly
- Building a Prezi with 5 animations
