• Microcredentials badge

    As we continue to strive for effective professional development to support our teachers and classrooms, we have created opportunities for teachers to earn micro-credentials in an online/hybrid format in topics they select. Along with the micro-credential, teachers earn time which they can use on a day that is mutually agreeable between teacher and supervisor.

    Thank you Dr. Walsh and BAEA President, Mr. Closser, for reaching an agreement to allow for this new format. 

    These experiences are open to all teachers. Five teachers can be in each class at a time. Since these are self-paced, once a teacher completes the activities, the next teacher on the list will be invited to begin. We will use a Google Form to collect sign-up lists. 

    Although these experiences are updated based on teacher feedback, you can only participate in a topic one time.

Offerings being piloted

  • Make Your Own

    Posted by Jacqueline Goodburn on 10/11/2019
    Good morning,

    Have you ever thought? I wish we would get PD on _______? I'm looking to pilot a new micro-credential where you Make Your Own by selecting a topic, creating a plan with me, and then completing whatever competencies best align with your topic and plans. Your topic and plans should be about changes to your practice that improve the experiences for your students, so learning to use _______ online tool could be part of a Make Your Own, but not the whole project.
