Educators Rising offers a series of freemicrocredentials for participating high school and college students in preparation for future teaching careers. These asynchronouscourses, offered through an online platform, require participants to learn about and then try research-based practices in their own interactions with students. Participants then submit evidence of their work, get feedback from reviewers, reflect on what they’ve learned, and ultimately demonstrate competency in the set of skills to earn the credential. The courses take between five and 15 hours to complete and include topics that Educators Rising considers crucial for future teachers to be successful: antibias instruction, classroom culture, collaboration, formative assessment, and learner engagement.
