Micro-Credentials Spring 2018 Webinar Series

Across SUNY’s 64 campuses, institutions are developing and implementing both credit and noncredit micro-credentialing programs that respond to student and industry demands. The concept of the credential is a transnational, interdisciplinary signal of capability and skill. Micro-credentials, which are competency-based, show proof of specific learning achievements. Please join us for this free webinar series, organized by the FACT2 Task Group on Micro-Credentials, which will provide information on the reasons to consider adopting a micro-credentialing program and how to do so effectively.

The first webinar in the series will introduce participants to the “nuts and bolts” of micro-credential programs. The successive webinars will feature representatives from across SUNY who will discuss the ways that their institutions are implementing micro-credentialing programs on their campuses. The concluding webinar, Getting Started in Micro-Credentialing, will provide guidance on how Buffalo State might get started on implementing its own micro-credentialing program.

You can register for one, some, or all the webinars in the series. We will advertise additional webinars as they are scheduled. This series is sponsored by the SUNY Faculty Advisory Council on Teaching and Technology (FACT2) in partnership with the SUNY Center for Professional Development.
