Presentation Abstract:

Badges or microcredentials are currently being used extensively in businesses outside of healthcare to document newly gained skills. Simulation is just beginning to dip its collective toe in the badging waters. Badges might appeal to simulationists and sim operations professionals because the role often does not fit into the predefined boxes created by current institutions of higher learning. Badging could prepare these non-traditional learners and those without the time or funds to attend traditional academic programs to demonstrate continued skill acquisition and competency in a new manner gaining popularity across the world. This presentation will discuss what badges are, why they are being used in the place of more traditional education, how they are earned, and what sources of badging exist for simulationists now.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Learners will be able to describe badging.
  2. Learners will be able to explain why badging is growing as an alternative to traditional education.
  3. Learners will be able to name two potential sources for badging in simulation.
