Success through the Recognition of Prior Learning Digital Badge.

We are delighted to share the success of the most recent iteration of the Recognition of Prior Learning Digital Badge! Following the Spring 2024 delivery of the RPL Digital Badge program:

  • 82 Digital Badges have been issued by the National Forum T&L
  • Of these 82, we are pleased to say that 53 badges were issued to staff working in our partner HEI's.
  • 29 Badges were awarded to various education and training institutions and organisations working in education.

A total of 262 badges have now been issued since 2023

Looking ahead, we're excited to deliver one final iteration which will commence in Autumn 2024. Dates will be finalised and shared soon.

A big thank you to the badge facilitators Dr Clare Walsh and Dr Ciara Staunton, as well as participants and learners for their dedication and hard work.

This open course has been developed by the National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education in partnership with Deirdre Goggin, Munster Technological University, and Cathal de Paor, MIC (original content designers); updates by Staunton Ciara, University College Cork and the RPL in Higher Education Project, a HCI Pillar 3 Initiative.
