School Districts can now grant renewal credits for these courses, which are FREE to members! SCDE recommends a minimum of 12 renewal credits per earned micro-credential.
Only The SCEA offers relevant and meaningful professional learning opportunities that are approved by The South Carolina Department of Education (SCDE) for licensure renewal. These micro-credentials allow you to learn at your own pace remotely or at school.
WHAT’S A MICRO-CREDENTIAL?
A micro-credential is a short, competency-based recognition that allows an educator to demonstrate mastery in a particular area. The SCEA micro-credentials are grounded in research and best practice and designed to be:
- Personalized: You can create your own learning journey, based on your interests and career goals; gaps in your skills; and the specific needs of your students, school, and district.
- Flexible: You can study when it’s convenient for you, alone or with your peers.
- Performance-based: Unlike “sit-and-get” certifications, The SCEA micro-credentials are awarded based on demonstrated mastery of the subject matter, not just for showing up.
Our micro-credentials are free for all of our members. To become a member, go to jointhescea.org. Non-members may participate in our micro-credential program, but must pay any associated fees.
Before starting a micro-credential, please check with your district's professional development coordinator to ensure they approve the course for renewal credits.
If they do not approve, please contact Todd Scholl at [email protected].
