Rush for free webinar on #Open Badges

Immediate action is required for this free webinar, as I only got word of it right now and deadline for registering is today.
On Wednesday 19 February 2014 from 12.30 - 13.15 London time, JISC Scotland provides a free lunchtime seminar for all of us interested in Open Badges from Mozilla.
More information can be found here.
And you can rush over to book for the session here (the organizers do ask, that if you sign up, you will actually join the webinar - ensuring synchronous interest also for the speaker, as well as the organizers).

A new infrastructure for enabling the digital accreditation of learning, Mozilla's Open Badge Infrastructure is well-placed for recognizing 21st century skills as well as unlocking career and educational opportunities. Grainne Hamilton will introduce the concept of Open Badges, covering how they could enhance current accreditation and how people are using Open Badges in Scotland. Grainne will go into some principles of effective Open Badge design and discuss tools to aid Open Badge development. By the end of the session, participants will have gained a basic understanding of the Open Badge Infrastructure, how Open Badge design can be approached and have had the opportunity to ask questions about Open Badges.
