> Here's a research publication opportunity for researchers, practitioners, and designers: 
> 
> Digital Badges in Education: Trends, Issues, and Cases
> Publisher: Routledge (Imprint of Taylor and Francis Group)
> 
> Call for Chapters – Proposals Due 30 October 2014
> 
> More than any other time in history, learners have access to a multitude of learning  opportunities. In large part, greater availability of learning options is possible because of the Internet through information and communication technologies. Individuals can pursue learning  both formally and informally to acquire the skills and knowledge that are needed to manage their  lives and careers. In this open educational landscape, it can be challenging for learners to find a  credible means to demonstrate to others, such as employers, the complete scope of their skills,  competencies, and accomplishments because formal transcripts, diplomas, and certificates don’t tell the whole story. Digital badges can reveal what they have learned informally and outside the formal school/training systems in addition to formal learning achievements. 
> 
> This book on digital badges is targeted to teachers, designers (e.g., instructional  designers, game designers), educators, and trainers—people who are developing learning  environments and instructional activities in K-12 education, higher education, the workplace,  and non-formal learning throughout a learner’s lifetime. Topics include but are not limited to:
> 
> Section I - Introduction (possible chapters)
> 
> Chapter History and Context
> Chapter Learning Theories
> Chapter Motivation Theories 
> Chapter Community participation and peer learning
> Chapter Competency-based Education
> Chapter Instructional Design Considerations
> Chapter Assessment and Badge Credibility
> Chapter Visual Design, Aesthetics, and Branding
> Chapter Micro-credentialing, formal education, and informal learning
> Chapter Potential Benefits and Concerns
> 
> Section II - Case Studies
> 
> Case studies will describe digital badges projects from a variety of sectors including K12, higher education, government, for-profit, and non-profit organizations. Each individual case will help the reader to understand the instructional design considerations and processes involved in a real-life implementation of digital badges for learning. Case study authors will describe how digital badges were applied in a specific learning environment, opportunity, or problem needing solved; and, will detail the analysis, design, development, implementation, and evaluation of their respective projects. 
> 
> Section III - Conclusion
> 
> Chapter Future Pathways in Education 
> 
> Authors should submit a one or two page proposal to both editors by 30 October 2014. Additionally, authors should include a list of their previously published or presented articles relevant to digital badges. Upon acceptance (approximately 30 November 2014) authors will have until 15 February 2015 (tentative) to complete their 3000-3500 word chapter. You may ask questions of either editor listed below.
