Tiger Giving Day is over, but you can still give to the College of Education here.
Let’s help Auburn take the lead in developing the state’s first micro-credentialing program designed to meet the continuing education needs of schoolteachers, administrators and the school systems they serve.
Your donation will allow us to provide micro-credential badge courses, at no cost, to our teachers and administrators.
Long a staple of industry professional development, micro-credentials, or micro badges, are short, competency-based recognitions that allow a professional to demonstrate mastery in a particular area. Micro-credential badges recognize the attainment of in-demand skills and competencies, and are a way to help build and advance one’s career.
By offering Alabama’s first micro-credential badge program to teachers and administrators free of charge and in a format that allows them to access courses from anywhere at any time, we assist them with the ongoing continuing education requirement that is crucial to maintaining certification.
K-12 faculty completing micro badges will also accrue credit toward College of Education graduate courses they may take in the future. Not only will this be a boon for K-12 teachers and administrators, but because we will work directly with school system partners to help them design micro-badges tailored to the needs of their schools, we advance local school systems.
Your gift toward our goal of $15,000 will enable College of Education faculty, alongside school district faculty, to co-create content for two micro-credential badges—at no cost to the local school systems. Each badge will consist of four micro-credentials. Your gift will help cover the cost of local school system content creator stipends, Canvas course creation and design, and video, audio, and multimedia creation and editing.
Please consider a gift of $100 to address a significant need among our K-12 teachers, bolster local school systems’ ability to develop expertise in areas of need, and help Auburn pioneer a new way of delivering professional development to our state’s K-12 educators.
