  • Badging From Within

    Inside Higher Ed - 01/03/2014

    Peter Stokes is executive director of postsecondary innovation in the College of Professional Studies at Northeastern University. He’s supportive of the concept behind badges, and thinks there are no real technical obstacles to making them work. But Stokes remains skeptical of badges having a major impact on higher education, at least for now.

    “The big challenge with the badge is to create currency in the market,” Stokes says.

    UC Davis is one of the first traditional institutions to give badging a whirl. Purdue University has also been a pioneer.
