Teacher professional development at your own pace
In partnership with Digital Promise, the Center for Professional Learning at Childhood Education International has created a series of professional development opportunities centered on refugee education and quality holistic learning.
What are Micro-Credentials?
Micro-credentials are competency-based assessments of an educator’s areas of expertise. They are rigorous, self-paced professional development opportunities for educators who are looking for PD that builds from their own context. Micro-credentials are a way for teachers to personalize professional development and demonstrate their teaching competencies.
We work with Digital Promise, an organization dedicated to recognizing professional learning, to develop and host a series of micro-credentials that democratize the knowledge and skills that are valued and promoted in the Refugee Educator Academy.
We currently offer the following micro-credentials, which are also found in the Digital Promise catalog. To access each micro-credential, click the image above the title of the micro-credential you wish to learn more about.
