Critical Skills to Teach Social Studies 

Staying at the cutting edge of research and technology empowers educators to meet the ever-changing needs of students. Discover how our micro-credential courses can help you bring thorough, narrow-in-focus, and accessible professional development to educators.

Choose where to invest your time

Flexibility and customization are at the heart of micro-credentialing. This style of professional development allows you to choose what you want to learn, rather than attending generic training that may not directly relate to your professional interests.

Learn at YOUR pace

As a busy educator, you have professional goals but limited time to execute them. Micro-credentials can be completed at your own pace, whether that's an intensive spring break program, or a commitment you work into your daily schedule during the school year.

Verify your expertise

We believe that teachers who put in the time to cultivate new skills deserve to be recognized. When you complete one of our Micro-credentials,  you receive a digital badge verifying your expertise that you can share with your employer and colleagues!
