What We Offer


As our students develop teaching skills, they deserve recognition for their growth. Micro-credentials (or digital badges) are performance-based assessments that allow rising educators to showcase their growing skills.

The five "Beginning to Teach" micro-credential topics are listed below. View and earn the Educators Rising micro-credentials.

Educators Rising Micro-credentials

Each micro-credential submission requires an estimated 5–15 hours of work, and rising educators are encouraged to earn them all. For each micro-credential, you’ll find submission criteria, a research base, recommended resources for preparing a submission, and a scoring rubric.

Submissions are reviewed by expert educators, ensuring that achieving a micro-credential represents a meaningful early step on a rising educator's path to accomplished teaching. Educators Rising is working with colleges, scholarship committees, employers, and other evaluators to recognize and value micro-credential achievement.

The Educators Rising micro-credentials were developed in partnership with Digital Promise, which is leading an innovative effort to develop an educator micro-credential ecosystem.

For more information about the micro-credentials, check out this one-page overview or contact us at info@educatorsrising.org
