Hosted by TICAL in collaboration with ACSA and CASCD

Name That Badge! Micro-credentials and educator professional development

March 15, 2016, 1:00 - 1:45 PM PDT
Educators earn credentials at the beginning of their careers, but they learn new skills every day. A micro-credential system provides teachers with the opportunity to gain recognition for skills they master throughout their careers. Karen Cator, President and CEO of Digital Promise, will provide you with an "executive summary" of the concept of badges and micro-credentials, what they accomplish, and how to implement them—with plenty of time to respond to your questions.

From 2009-2013, Karen was Director of the Office of Educational Technology at the U.S. Department of Education, where she led the development of the 2010 National Education Technology Plan and focused the Office’s efforts on teacher and leader support. Prior to joining the department, Cator directed Apple’s leadership and advocacy efforts in education. Read more about Karen.
