SWPRSC is offering microcredentials in four specialty areas for certified educators beginning Fall 2018.  Professionals enrolling in these programs will attend a series of workshops throughout the year, work through online assignments, then complete and present an action-research project in May to a cohort group.  When they complete their course, educators will earn a certificate documenting their expertise. 

Currently, educators may count their microcredential course work toward PDC points (knowledge through impact).  Plans are being finalized to award college credit (SWP will have a plan in place by October 2018 for professionals interested in earning credit of this kind).
