Momentum in Micro-credentialing

The New Era of Educator Growth and Advancement

Micro-credentials have been rising in popularity over the past few years. Fourteen states have launched micro-credential initiatives as well as hundreds of districts across the country. While many think of micro-credentials as an alternative form of professional development, they are being leveraged for so much more.

In this webinar, you’ll hear how three organizations are incorporating micro-credentials into their educator talent management strategies to help recruit, retain, and develop effective educators. Each will discuss how they are implementing micro-credentials, not just as a mode of professional learning, but as the building blocks for career advancement, certification, and licensure. By the end, you’ll walk away with a better understanding of how micro-credentialing works, why states are building incentives for them, and the implementation and structural changes required to make a shift towards micro-credentialing.
