Open Thinkering


Earning a badge in preparation for my MSc

I’m due to start my MSc in Systems Thinking in Practice on November 1st. In preparation for this, the Open University (OU) suggest that I take a short badged open course entitled Succeeding in postgraduate study via their OpenLearn platform. I completed the course today and was issued an Open Badge.

Although my focus is more on Open Recognition than microcredentials these days, I’m delighted that taking this badged course is part of the recommended workflow when pursuing postgraduate study through the OU. It’s a perfect use case, as otherwise I’d probably only have glanced at the preparatory materials.

Between work and preparing to move house next weekend I’m reasonably busy, but if I get any spare time I’ll probably have a look at the Mastering systems thinking in practice course on OpenLearn.
