From Student-Centered to Student Agency Learning Recognition and Aspirations

Monday, February 13 | 4:00PM–4:45PM | Houston Ballroom I, II, III
Session Type: Featured Session
Delivery Format: Featured Session
The core of student-centered learning is student initiative acquired through doing. Looking at the current rise in interest in learning recognition systems and their potential to connect evidence to learning assessments, we’ll examine their potential as a lever for change and how translating these to student assertions about their aspirations for learning might help. The technology underlying these possibilities has been coopted by institutional paradigms of credentialing, so we’ll look at badging and distributed ledger technologies as case studies to explore how we might reframe this paradigm.

Outcomes: Familiarity with recognition systems, metadata standards, IMSGLOBAL extensions for education * Understand assessment rubrics for complex and procedural learning * Learn how distributed ledger technology can transfer management of learning accomplishment and learning intention records to the learner
