As part of our robust, on-demand micro-credential ecosystem, we are proud to partner with organizations to provide pathways for personalized learning. These research-backed micro-credentials are digital certifications that verify an individual’s competence in a specific skill or set of skills, regardless of where and how they learned them. Over the last two months, we’ve launched 17 micro-credentials from our partners, and the ecosystem is growing every day.
The Friday Institute at North Carolina State University added a micro-credential on Self-Awareness to its Learner Variability stack. This micro-credential focuses on leveraging students’ strengths to support them with challenges related to self-awareness. It also shares strategies and tools for educators, including the Learner Variability Navigator.
The Maricopa County Education Service Agency (MCESA) has developed six new micro-credentials that address skills, feedback, and assessment strategies in the Instructional Conferencing stack.
The United World College of South East Asia (UWCSEA) launched its first micro-credential, Planning for Concept-Based Teaching and Learning. UWCSEA is one of the longest-established K-12 international schools in Singapore. Planning for concept-based teaching and learning is designed around transferable conceptual understandings, providing an effective way to develop students’ critical, creative, and reflective thinking.
And finally, we re-launched four stacks of literacy-focused micro-credentials, developed by Actively Learn. Digital Promise aims to continue to broaden its catalog of micro-credentials to support literacy instruction.
