Utah Microcredentials: Recognizing and Rewarding ALL Professional Learning

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Educators are self-directed learners, continually developing new skills and finding ways improving their practice. The Utah Microcredentials System recognizes this and provides educators with an opportunity to earn certification and credit for these self-directed efforts.

A microcredential, also known as a badge, is a digital form of certification. It represents an educator’s demonstration of effective and consistent use of the target skill or concept as a part of instructional practice. Any educator in Utah’s public education system can earn microcredentials, including classroom teachers, instructional coaches, counselors, administrators, etc. Earning a microcredential provides the educator with three things: visible recognition of demonstrated competency, leadership opportunities, and USBE credit.

Come learn how to earn microcredentials, how to become a stipended microcredential reviewer, and how to participate in the creation of new microcredentials for other educators to earn!
