Digital Promise and co-hosts CCSSO and Learning Forward are hosting a convening to discuss the growing micro-credential ecosystem and the opportunities and challenges for states and districts.

At this convening, state and district leaders, micro-credential issuers, and other stakeholders will explore how micro-credentials can be recognized through continuing education units, for teacher re-licensure, in support of hiring, and more. Participants will discuss implications for validating growth, strengthening learning systems, and supporting state-level goals and priorities.

We will be adding session titles and speakers as they are confirmed, so stay tuned to this event page.
