The National Education Association will be providing members an opportunity to participate in a virtual Professional Learning Community (PLC) to support successful completion of a NEA Micro-credential from start to finish. Educators who participate in a PLC to complete a micro-credential are more likely to earn their badge the first time.
The virtual PLC will be facilitated by a trained micro-credential facilitator and consist of weekly support meetings via Zoom. Members may register for more than one PLC.
PLCs will start during the week of July 13 and end by Aug. 31. PLCs meet anytime from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. HST for 30 to 60 minutes. Facilitators will reach out to participants with exact dates and times.
A micro-credential is a short, competency-based recognition that allows an educator to demonstrate mastery in a particular area. These micro-credentials have been developed by NEA to allow for learning without requiring interaction with students in a classroom setting.
You must be an HSTA/NEA member to register for this professional learning opportunity. If you do not have one already, you will need to create an account with the NEA's Certification Bank.
NEA micro-credentials are free for HSTA members. You will receive a certificate of completion, but this does not apply to Hawaii State Department of Education reclassification credit.
