Benefits of Teacher Badging
Project management is a skill set that is valuable to students across disciplines. It is both a learning skill that helps students learn to better manage classroom projects and a career skill that is highly sought after by employers. Because of this, a growing number of schools are committing to incorporating project management into classroom instruction and student learning.
Teacher micro-credentials allow teachers to provide verifiable evidence of their proficiency in using project management in the classroom, backed by PMIEF. Micro-credentials demonstrate proficiency rather than relying on pursuing a set number of classroom hours, so they focus on documenting the work teachers are already doing to provide learning experiences for their students and can be earned at the teacher’s own pace.
