The teacher-training microcredential trend allows educators to specialize and gain additional training in the areas most relevant to their interests and classroom style. Once they earn those credentials, they can share their knowledge with their peers through teacher-led PD.
This is another example of how the traditional sit-and-get model of professional development is being replaced by more relevant training teachers seek. To offer these programs, states and districts typically contract with companies like Digital Promise.
