Digital Badge Achievement
Learning Structures
"In 2014, Open Badges™ Discovery Project Identified Four (4) Learning Structures (Linear, Freeform, Tiered & Clustered) For Learning Paths & Complexities Vary Based On Cannabis Competencies, Personal Interests & Professional Experiences... Some May Be Short, While Others Takes Many Forms, So Different Pathways May Be Simple, Linear, or Complexly Interconnected."
Learning Paths
Learning Pathways

Learning Paths are the chosen routes individuals complete as they progress through a specific cannabis industry specialization, academic programs, and learning experiences. It’s a roadmap describing the landscape of a field, program, or specialization that is made of steps that represent requirements, competencies, or other “real-world experiences” that take the form of a hierarchy of nested steps.

Learning pathways serve as the scaffolding and trajectory to understanding progression that allows the cannabis industry to organize badge credentials into shared pathways that better connect experiences across many learning contexts.

Learning Paths can be organized around digital badge systems that are already implemented or can assist with the design of new systems by providing structure. Badges and pathways are defined by the cannabis industry’s understanding of what individuals accomplish for expertise. 

Learning Pathways (aka “Competency Frameworks”) is a means for people to gain comprehensive competencies in a cannabis niche while earning different badges to realize expert-level competencies. A pathway may have multiple routes that have the same endpoint, multiple entry points to achieve similar outcomes, and/or even outcomes may diverge based Learning Pathway(s).

Until recently, most Learning Pathways have focused on prescriptive, institutional, or corporate learning objectives/achievements, ignoring successful learning from unstructured environments such as continuing education, conference workshops, etc. Badges are a means to recognize those opportunities and incorporate their benefits into creating an accurate digital portrayal of accomplishments.

Competency Frameworks
"Competency Frameworks Depict Different Learning Pathways To Support Badge Earners By Using "Nested Structures" Within Steps In It That Model Real-World Relationships Between Concepts People Understand As "Categories or "Containers" Full Of Smaller Component Courses. Looking At Pathway B, There's Three (3) Levels Of Steps, Where Some Have A Badge Associated & Others Have Only One (1) Learning Path Since Badges May Be Shared Between Multiple Learning Pathways."
Pathway Competencies
Standards Implementation

For competency framework design, identification of purpose, structure, and achievement are critical no matter if you are starting from scratch or badge mapping existing standards. Rather than plodding through creating each badge, one by one, how do you organize them in a meaningful way for learners? 

Purpose (Steps)
Structure (Shape)
Achievement (Endpoint)

When badges are being added to a pre-existing curriculum, the curriculum may constrain the way learning is recognized, so if an existing curriculum is not aligned to standards then it’s very difficult to align a badge to standards. One of the biggest considerations when designing pathways is if:

When integrating, it’s important to think about your badges as a whole. How will you implement them? What kind of badges are you awarding? How often will you award badges? Are badge earners allowed to test out of specific steps, demonstrate relevant competencies, or bring in badges earned from other issuers?

Alternatively, when the curriculum is being developed alongside badges, the options for both may seem limitless and overwhelming. Pre-existing standards-based curricula can importantly help to structure design decisions and there are specific advantages for either approach.

Theoretically, Learning Pathway structures are well accepted, but operationalizing them into an applied application can be a challenge so implementation of learning structures is based on a hierarchically organized set of steps. Completing each micro-step can be thought of as the pieces that form a pathway to the parent objective(s).

Green CulturED™ learning structures are not overly complex, making them accessible to many use cases while providing enough structure to offer a common way to think about badge system design, including defining the achievement of an individual or organization’s learning goals.
