Micro-credentials: Driving educators’ learning & leadership
Teachers must help all students become adept critical thinkers, collaborators, and communicators, but to do so effectively, teachers need to devote significant time and effort to their own professional growth.
A potential solution for strengthening professional development is at hand: micro-credentials for educators.
In several published reports, CTQ explores micro-credentials as a way for educators to document their formal and informal learning:
- Micro-credentials: Driving teacher learning and leadership
- Teacher micro-credentialing movement continues
- Micro-credentials and the transformation of professional learning in California schools
