Millersburg Area School District Representatives Travel To Knoxville, Tennessee To Learn About Micro-Credentialing
Millersburg Area School District representatives Mr. Ted Book, Mr. Gabriel Foust, Mrs. Jessica Miller, Mr. Eric Petery and Ms. Lindsey Pukas traveled to Knoxville, Tennessee as part of an exciting new learning opportunity about micro-credentialing. Micro-credentials are a digital form of certification indicating demonstrated competency/mastery in a specific skill or set of skills and is a new model being developed for professional learning. While there, the group participated in a site visit to Jefferson Middle School in Oak Ridge, Tennessee and met with Machel Mills from the Tennessee Department of Education and several micro-credentialing pilot coordinators from across the state of Tennessee. They learned about the Tennessee pilot program to utilize micro-credentialing as an avenue for professional development and obtained valuable information on their successes and struggles in implementation.
Our representatives are a part of a 12 district micro-credentialing pilot program led by Jill Neuhard at the Capital Area Intermediate Unit and are continuing to work to make the implementation of micro-credentialing successful here in Pennsylvania and within Millersburg Area School District.
