Micro-credentials support competency-based professional learning for teachers by offering digital badges for demonstrated proficiency in specific knowledge and skills. In partnership with NC State’s Friday Institute for Educational Innovation, Hill has developed micro-credentials in the National Reading Panel’s five key areas for effective reading instruction, which are also aligned with the components of HillRAP – phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and text comprehension. These micro-credentials are relevant to HillRAP instructors, but also to any educator seeking to increase and demonstrate proficiency in teaching core foundational skills.
Hill is currently piloting these micro-credentials with select schools and districts. Click here to read the descriptions of our micro-credential stacks.
