What is a Microcredential? 

Microcredentials, also known as digital badges, represent evidence-based instructional skills or concepts. A microcredential is proof that the earner has demonstrated that they effectively and consistently use the target skill or concept as a part of instructional practice.

                                                                          

 

 

Who Can Earn a Microcredential?

Any educator in Utah’s K-12 public education system can earn Utah Microcredentials. This includes educators in both district schools and charters. We strive to develop microcredentials that can be earned by educators in a range of roles, including classroom teachers, instructional coaches, counselors, administrators, etc.

                                                                 

 

 

Why Earn Microcredentials?

Microcredentials give the earner two things: bragging rights and USBE credits. You’ll want to post your Microcredentials for others to see on social media and include them on your resume so employers can see your skillset. Microcredentials are worth either 0.25 or 0.5 USBE credits, depending on the skill or concept they represent.
