For this Between the Chapters episode, Laura chats with Joyce Seitzinger about all things badged connected to Chapter 22: Digital Badges. In reflecting back to 2015, we have much to say about micro-credential, open badges, and what it means to get digital street cred based on a certificate, credential, course, or training. We share how we have been working to upskill with professional credentials as the world of work is changing, and how higher ed might consider what it means to embed badges, training, or certifications related to the skills needed for employment. Maybe badging and credentials offer ways for colleges and universities to have an ongoing, lifelong relationship with learners? Or perhaps we need more partnerships across sectors of work and education?

Questions to ponder from this open/digital badge conversation:
- How can we collaborate and partner education and industry sectors for credentials?
- What would it look like if particular sectors helped train and credential with badges?
- What are the small pieces that you could break down or give recognition that X competency or skill be met (for a badge)?
- What are the opportunities and limitations, within your own system, of how far digital credentials can actually go? How can we make connections to these credentials?
- What are the systems you need to tap into or can you hook your current training/learning programs into that already offer credentials?
