Field Trip: Micro-credentials in Action

At the Weilenmann School of Discovery, competency-based learning has taken wing. This week, administrators and teachers share what they’re doing, and why professional learning has never been so relevant.

Executive Director Cindy Phillips, along with several teachers and administrators, tell the story of how micro-credentials and making videos of their classroom practice help each teacher feed their inner student and gain knowledge they can use right away.

  • How they got started with micro-credentials
  • What it took to get buy-in from teachers
  • Breaking through the discomfort of seeing yourself on video, and why it’s so worth it
  • The “unexpected, delightful and productive results” competency-based learning has had on other types of professional development at Weilenmann
