The National Forum is currently compiling a peer review panel of expertise for supporting the digital badge development process for professional development (PD). Following a Call for Submissions on PD digital badging in December 2016, a number of colleagues from across the HE sector have expressed an interest in being involved in peer review for specific badge content areas. For those of you who have not already been included in this, we would like to extend the invitation to be involved in this important validation role in the digital badge development process. Peer Review in this context is the improvement process by which badge content is evaluated for quality and significance to a field. As identified expert peers, you will be invited to provide valuable feedback so that the badge development team can have the opportunity, if required, to revise and improve their digital badge content based on your constructive suggestions. This has the intention of encouraging open dialogue on the badge content areas and accompanying Professional Development (PD) Package between the peer reviewers and the development teams. Members from this panel whose professional interests and expertise aligns with the identified badge areas will be invited to undertake the peer review in the time period from 19th April to 3rd May 2017.
Please feel free to complete this short online form before 10th April to indicate your willingness to participate.
