As I had the pleasure of making badges for some of the nursing faculty for their courses, it has been fun to create and eye-opening for me to see this enjoyable, rewarding way to teaching that I was unaware of as a Student!

It gives students a little bit of friendly competition to achieve all the badges for their course.

It also seems like a great way to learn and earn a small reward when a task or assignment is completed throughout the semester. 

It’s like receiving a small gift/recognition when you achieve a badge and you can collect all of them. I think this is creative way to get students more engaged and enthused about completing assignments or challenges!

The Hub’s Innovation Champion, Laura Killam, is one of the amazing nursing faculty I have collaborated with in designing badges for and she is always open to discuss gamification and badging if you’re curious to find out more!
