Microcredentials: Teacher Learning Transformed
Berry, Barnett; Airhart, Kathleen M.; Byrd, P. Ann
Phi Delta Kappan, v98 n3 p34-40 Nov 2016
Teachers and administrators attest that the current workshop and seat-time approach to professional development has not been working. Microcredentials offer a new approach. Inspired by the badging movement, microcredentials offer teachers opportunities to document their learning using work samples, videos, and other artifacts. Based on this evidence, teachers receive a microcredential that they can share across social media platforms, through email, and on blogs and résumés. Digital Promise and its content partners have developed more than 200 microcredentials. The Tennessee Department of Education is now working on launching a microcredential pilot.
