The Latest News and Views in
Competency-based Professional Learning


Hello there,

I love seeing how micro-credentials are taking off — not just with schools and districts, but also with state departments of education, with educational organizations, and with professional development providers.

There are state-level micro-credential initiatives in 12 states. One that we've been working closely with is Tennessee, where we are in the middle of a three-phase approach to implementing micro-credentials.  

We are also seeing more and more organizations wanting to partner with us to develop and administer micro-credential programs, like the National Association for Gifted Children, which we announced today.

I hope you'll take a deeper look in this month's newsletter.
