What Is a Micro-credential?
Micro-credentials are a form of professional development that break down a scholarly topic or general skill into its discrete parts. Micro-credentials require a demonstration of competency in each discrete segment of that general skill via a portfolio or performance assessment. Once competency has been demonstrated a micro-credential in that discrete segment of the general skill or scholarly topic is awarded. Individual micro-credentials are then “stacked” to collectively represent a proven body of knowledge on a particular scholarly topic or general skill. Micro-credentials elevate the outcomes of their earners; as they not only learn about discrete embedded skills within a scholarly topic but they also may apply that skill in their practice and demonstrate their pedagogical growth as a result.
After successfully completing the coursework and passing the course assessment or required portfolio, you will be issued a specially designed badge for that course. Behind the badge is listed the course competencies met. These competencies are standards aligned to the Knowledge and Practice Standards of the International Dyslexia Association.
The badge is a symbol representing your newly acquired knowledge. This badge can be displayed on your social media and included on your email signature.
