Micro-Credentials for Leadership and Learning
To keep high-performing educators in classrooms, systems must create compelling opportunities that provide true pathways to leadership. Micro-credentials - competency-based recognition for the skills educators use every day - are a promising method for implementing meaningful career pathways that empower educators and keep them engaged. District leaders who are using micro-credentials to support and expand teacher leadership through PLCs will share their successes and challenges.
