Open Badges for Quality
Open Badges can be used as a means to promote and achieve Quality as:
- Organisational Quality Marks: embed in the ISO 9001 picture the metadata related to the obtention of the ISO certificate: criteria, evidence, issuer, earner, delivery and renewal date, etc.
- Individual Competency Recognition: recognise the competencies of quality professionals, e.g. Quality Manager, Quality Assessor or Quality Innovator badges.
- Support to Quality Processes: use Open Badges to create a portfolio of evidence used to claim a Quality Mark.
- Inform Quality Processes: e.g. analyse the endorsements of the Open Badges delivered to students as indicators for the quality of the learning provision of the issuing institution.
