European Badge Alliance Conference

Diplomas and certificates are now changing under the pressure of the digital revolution.

Also recognition of skills nowadays is transitioning to digital!

Fast changing world, multiplication of learning opportunities at home and abroad in informal and non formal settings, need of being competitive on the job market, need of professional development for everyone have determined the creation of open badges.

Open badges are online visual tools summarising the learning outcomes reached by a learner, the kind of methodology used and the issuing entity, de facto superseding printed certificates thanks to the completeness of information that they can give.

EucA believes that online badges should be more and more used in order to improve assessment and certification of non formal and informal learning.

Thanks to the badges, students taking part in a international mobility experience (or in any other form of training) will be able to give value and showcase his/her own learning to a future employer or in any other setting.

The project European Badge Alliance will have its conference at the European Parliament on June 27 2017.

MEPs, practitioners, European Commission officials and other relevant stakeholders will discuss the impact that online badges have in the field of education and which applications they have.

The full programme is available here.

The registration is open until June 15th here.
