Digital Promise micro-credential

Digital Promise logo

To build teachers’ competency in concept-based teaching and learning, we have developed a micro-credential that recognises strong planning practices. This supports us in planning for transfer of learning in an intentional way.

Understanding the link between planning and teaching, the micro-credential provides an opportunity for educators to see how purposeful concept-based planning can lead to enhanced learner outcomes, with a strong focus on understanding. It connects the thinking we do before stepping into the classroom with the activities we facilitate with our students.

For UWCSEA, the creation of the micro-credential was a significant milestone in our development. Since 2011, we have gone through the journey of writing a K–12 concept-based curriculum (we called this curriculum articulation) in four of the five elements of our learning programme, including Academics, Outdoor Education, Personal and Social Education, and Service. Likewise, we have transformed classroom practice to support students in thinking at both the factual and the conceptual level. As an organisation, the development of this micro-credential has given us the opportunity to encapsulate important learning we’ve had around concept-based planning, and to share that learning within our community through our Professional Learning programme, and beyond.

The world may be complex, and change may be inevitable, but our concept-based approach to teaching and learning is designed to equip our learners with transferable understandings that will enable them to decipher unknown future contexts.
