At REALIZE! 2015, we will be issuing badges to participants as recognition of their participation in the Forum.
What is a badge?
A badge is a digital evidence of achievements, skills, affiliations or roles. It is increasingly used in online environments to recognize online learning. With the technology present in our everyday lives, it influences our professional image as well. When we gain our professional knowledge, collaborate and practice our skills online, it is important to have our profile or portfolio updated as digital representation of our achievements.
REALIZE badge could be the first one to start your online “recognition wall”, or be a valuable addition to it.
This year, REALIZE team including Advisory Committee agreed to differentiate between Presenter’s, Moderator’s, Participant’s and Contributor’s roles.
Learn, share, collaborate and contribute and be recognized for your achievements! On the day of the Forum start, a certificate/badge submission form will be opened. Participants will be able to fill it out and provide links to evidence of activity completion(s).
Badges can be then placed on professional networks, or social media profiles, websites, blogs. forums, etc.
Enjoy the Forum!
