Intended Audience: Professional Learners/Educators
Micro-credentials have become a popular certification system that recognizes individuals for their proficiency in a particular competency. Unlike traditional certification models like the SCECH, which awards participants for their attendance, micro-credentials evaluate individuals based on their ability to demonstrate mastery of a specific skill or knowledge.
Micro-credentials are designed to be competency-based, personalized, job-embedded, research-based, shareable, and self-directed. As a result, the learning experience of a micro-credential is tailored to meet the unique needs of each individual learner.
During the micro-credential learning experience, learners are encouraged to explore and utilize a variety of resources to develop evidence artifacts that demonstrate their mastery of the targeted competency. The artifacts produced during the learning experience can be shared and showcased to others through a digital badge that is awarded to the learner upon successful completion of the micro-credential.
