Professional Development Challenges

Becoming an Open Foreign Language Educator is a journey; it takes more than a symposium. To get you started on your journey, we have created several professional challenges for you to undertake this fall in your own classroom. And the best part is that you can earn badges to document your growing expertise in Open Education. Just follow the directions below:

Badge #1: The Power of Openness – Attendee

Get started earning badges! Set up your Mozilla Open Badges Backpack so you can display your badges. And then share your reactions to this symposium and begin your journey as an Open Foreign Language Educator.

Badge #2: The Power of Openness – Collaborator

Badge #3: Voices for Openness
