dLab and College & Career Readiness Lab launch digital badge project
In collaboration with Dr. Laurie Henry, of the College & Career Readiness Lab, the dLab kicked off a new project to develop digital badges for design thinking. The overall project, a collaboration between Henry and dLab director Dr. John Nash, will culminate in an digital/technical infrastructure for delivering competency-based badges. Dr. Henry’s focus will be on granting badges for soft skills in business settings for adult learners. Nash’s efforts will center of developing a badging system for different competencies associated with design thinking.
The debut of the project took place at the College of Education “Rocket Launch” luncheon, the second in an occasional series of lunch-hour colloquia focusing during which faculty and staff announce the launch of new products, projects and publications.
