Micro-credentials are a new and exciting way to show off your core educational competencies! This personalized learning opportunity allows you to utilize your existing knowledge and experience, along with provided learning resources, to earn a digital badge that demonstrates your mastery of a specific skill.
A Micro-credential is not a course. The process includes submitting artifacts to be evaluated by an assessor in order to earn a sharable badge that you can use in your resume, email signature as well as social networks.
Each micro-credential earned can be counted as an administrator academy credit, or 20 professional development hours.
Illinois Principals Association is an approved Illinois State Board of Education learning partner through IL-Empower, which allows micro-credintials to be paid for with IL-Empower dollars. Learn more about IL-Empower here.
