About the session
The Disruptive Media Learning Lab was host to a hands-on Badging Workshop by Mark Riches (Co-Founder of Makewaves). Mark delivered a short talk about badging before giving attendees the tools to integrate badging into their teaching and learning activities.
If you would like to learn more about badging or you have a class, which you would like badging to be implemented in, then we recommend you visit Makewaves for more information. We can offer you follow-up support from the DMLL to trial and evaluate badging in your teaching.
