Micro-credentials are a way for teachers to demonstrate professional competencies and provide evidence of outcomes from professional learning. Their strength lies in the flexibility, voice and choice, and relevance they provide teachers. Teachers have control over how the learning occurs and can choose topics that are most relevant to them and their students at the time. While teachers can earn micro-credentials independently, the department conducted the Tennessee Micro-credential Pilot to gather feedback and explore avenues for providing more personalized learning for educators across the state.
