What is a micro-credential?
A micro-credential is a short, competency-based recognition that allows an educator to demonstrate mastery in a particular area such as Bully Free Schools or English Language Learners. The OEA/NEA micro-credentials are created by educators, for educators and are grounded in research and best-practices designed to be:
- Personalized: Create your own learning journey, based on your interests and career goals; gaps in your skills; and the needs of your students, school, district.
- Flexible: You can study when it’s convenient for you, alone or with your peers.
- Performance-based: Unlike “sit-and-get” training, micro-credentials are awarded based on demonstrated mastery of the subject matter.
OEA offers several ways for members to get started with micro-credentials and members can earn 1 graduate credit per completed micro-credential for just $50. To learn more, visit https://grow.oregoned.org/independent-study/micro-credentials.Learn more about Micro-credentials
