Project Description

Digital badges are increasingly being recognized as a mechanism to signify accomplishments such as completion of a project, mastery of a skill, or marks of experience, and offer an opportunity to enhance York’s educational experience. A digital badging infrastructure will be piloted in Lassonde to encourage experiential participation, while enhancing ways of recording student curricular and co-curricular experiences.
