CTL micro-credentials offer CU Boulder instructors opportunities to engage in sustained inquiry and skill-building around a teaching topic. CTL micro-credentials are open to tenured and tenure-track faculty, instructors of all levels, lecturers, postdoctoral scholars, graduate and professional students, and teaching staff.
What are micro-credentials?
While traditional degrees and other certifications recognize full programs of academic study, micro-credentials provide a way to recognize and document the acquisition of specific skills or competencies. Upon successful completion of a micro-credential program, learners are issued a digital badge that allows achievements to be displayed and shared. Badges contain metadata about the program's requirements and learning objectives, as well as links to educational artifacts. Micro-credentials at CU Boulder are administered by the Office of the Registrar.
