      Developing leaders for a digital age badges

      The learning or professional development resources and activities on this course are available all of the time, and it is up to you which you undertake (if any) and in which order. There are activities embedded into the course materials which ask you to visualise, analyse and explore the situation at your own organisation and to begin action planning for the future. The outcomes will be yours to use in your own setting. There will also be opportunities to share and discuss your outcomes at the webinars.
