This symposium is based on a recently published edited volume “Foundations of Digital Badges and Micro-Credentials” which aims to provide insight into how digital badges may enhance formal and informal education by focusing on technical design issues including organizational requirements, instructional design, and deployment. All panel members are contributors to the edited volume and will share their perspectives on (1) digital badges’ impact on learning and assessment, (2) digital badges within instructional design and technological frameworks, and (3) the importance of stakeholders for the implementation of digital badges.
