Badges for Higher Education
This group is focused on finding ways badges work well in higher education. Higher learning institutions have the potential to accept badges in the admissions evaluation process as well as as issuers credentialing course content and informal learning experiences. This group explores these and a range of related issues, such as supporting disciplinary research into badges (more details).
