Educators are self-directed learners, continually developing new skills and finding innovative ways improving their practice. The Utah Microcredentials System recognizes this and provides educators with an opportunity to earn USBE credits for these self-directed efforts.

Additionally, for the first time, you can now use microcredentials to earn USBE teaching endorsements! Beginning in 2022, Utah teachers can demonstrate competencies with microcredentials as an alternative to taking courses.

Come learn how to earn microcredentials, how to become a stipended microcredential reviewer, and how to participate in the creation of new microcredentials for other educators to earn!

A microcredential, also known as a badge, is a digital form of certification. It represents an educator’s demonstration of effective and consistent use of the target skill or concept as a part of instructional practice. Any educator in Utah’s public education system can earn microcredentials, including classroom teachers, instructional coaches, counselors, administrators, etc. Earning a microcredential provides the educator with three things: visible recognition of demonstrated competency, leadership opportunities, and USBE credit.
