In my qualitative research at the University of Pennsylvania, I implemented gamification and digital badges through "Gradecraft," an LMS designed by the University of Michigan to promote self-efficacy, personalized-education and competency-based grading. Using their sophisticated digital badging system, students could choose what standards they could obtain by providing evidence for competency. These credentials represented essential historical thinking skills that could be earned at any time during the course through summative and formative assessments. The acquisition of badges was not an easy task, but when achieved, it was rewarding.

*This will be held during a 60 minute session, with the idea that attendees rotate between different table talks for a period of approx. 20 mins.*
