Open Badges in Higher Education Conference

ILIaD is no longer active.

During 2016, a review of ILIaD concluded that the continuing provision of effective and sustainable support for staff development and technology-enhanced education would be best addressed by embedding the functions previously based in ILIaD within iSolutions, the Library, the Faculty of Social, Human and Mathematical Sciences, and Human Resources.   

As an interim measure, if you have a question or require support in any of these areas, please contact either HR; your Business Relationship Manager (iSolutions); Academic Engagement Librarian (Library)  or the newly formed Centre for Higher Education Practice and they will be able to redirect you as appropriate.

On 8th March 2016 The University of Southampton is hosting the Open Badges in Higher Education Conference aimed at raising awareness of the huge amount of activity both in Higher Education and in the commercial world for Open Badges.

During the day you will have the opportunity to hear from a range of exciting presenters and be inspired to take the next step in your Open Badges journey.
