What are Micro-credentials?

Micro-credentials are just in time, asynchronous, small chunks of professional learning experiences that will demonstrate proficiency in a specific skill. Our vision is to promote learning so educators can apply their learnings in their practice, collect evidence, and demonstrate their competence.
