Pioneer No-Cost Professional Development for Educators

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.
