What Teachers Say About Micro-credentials

The feedback I’ve been getting in the program has been extremely valuable. I love my learning coach. Working through the
micro-credentials, being able to share the artifacts and evidence
of my work, and have a discussion about it is transforming
my teaching.

Earning micro-credentials allows me to set my own pace and apply the learning directly to my practice. It is an authentic learning experience that benefits my students and myself. In being a “learn by doing” kind of person, the content allows me to demonstrate competency within my classroom context.
