See what people are saying about micro-credentials

“NEA offers so many choices in micro-credentials that there is something to meet almost any need I might have. I look forward to challenging myself to earn more NEA Micro-Credentials in the future. Thank you NEA for creating a progressive program that meets the needs of modern teachers improving the quality of education in America.”

Lauren E. Cluff(AZ),

“The rigor of the research and relevancy of the tasks provided me with the unique opportunity to select an area of professional development that specifically targets a need for me and my situation. The impact of earning the micro-credential was immediate!”

Maria Santa Maria (VT),

“Thanks to the NEA Teacher Leadership Institute, I was introduced to the NEA micro-credential program. I love this program because it gives teachers choices; both in what and how they want to pursue their professional development.

Lauren E. Cluff (AZ),

I chose to earn NEA Micro-Credentials due to the engaging and relevant nature of the coursework. I earned Micro-Credentials in areas of educational practice that interest me and pertain to the majority of my students, but which were not part of my graduate degree program.
My learning was authentic and directly impacted student engagement and performance.”

Rachel Thune (AZ),

The micro-credentials offered by NEA are more like a National Board Certification process than a workshop or course. m Teachers show their proficiency through completion of the requirements for each micro-credential. They may have learned about the topic through a course they took prior to their work on micro-credentials and/or through their classroom experience. It’s definitely a challenging and rigorous process!”

Tricia Roach (AZ),

“I appreciate the chance to learn what I want to rather than what the building decides. I can work at my own pace. Very clear outcomes”

Stella Cypher (CO),

“I chose the NEA micro-credentials specifically because of the reputation of the organization. Unlike private firms who offer micro-credentials for a cost, I knew that the NEA had the best interest of educators in mind and that they would be consistent and reliable. Some colleagues who had chosen the private firms had micro-credentials simply disappear while they were in the process of completing them! I knew that wouldn’t happen with the NEA.”

Kristen Pierce (IL),

PRACTICAL, Useful activities. This was not a discussion post, but very genuine work that I can use this week with my real students.”
