EdTech Innovator Chase: Rewarding Faculty Innovation through badges
Wilfredo Rodriguez, Coordinator, Educational Technology, Kate Lyons, Assistant Professor Library; Carlos Guevara, Director, Educational Technology, Hostos CC
Each semester we celebrate our college EdTech Innovators– everyone who’s using technology to explore new pedagogical approaches. We applaud early adopters for developing best practices, because maybe they’re doing something nobody else has. Those who innovate in the most EdTech areas and (most importantly!) help their colleagues level up, compete for the epic win. The EdTech Innovator Chase, a gamified activity (digital badges) was created to showcase faculty innovations in teaching practices.
