Description

Sparks! Innovation Showcase

Join fellow educators for Micro-Credentials & Me: Minding Your Own Growth Mindset

When: Thursday, May 4th from 4:00 – 6:00pm

Where: WiscNet – 605 Science Drive, Madison

Microcredentials. Badges. Competency-based recognition. What’s going on with microcredentials and how can the development of ‘badging’ inspire your own growth mindset and professional learning?

Come learn more about this new trend and hear about UW-Extension’s role as part of a nation-wide Consortium exploring how we can make self-directed learning accessible and relevant to learners (and teaching professionals) of all ages.

  • Andrea Deau is the Information Technology Director at the University of Wisconsin-Extension, Continuing Education, Outreach & E-Learning (CEOEL) and the Co-Director of the University of Wisconsin ADL Partnership Lab where she leads a growing IT organization that supports and develops the technical infrastructure for the University of Wisconsin-System’s Competency Based Education (the UW Flexible Option) and other online degrees and programs for adult learners including the University Learning Store. Before coming to the University of Wisconsin-Extension, she served as the director for academic technology services at Madison Area Technical College managing enterprise learning technologies, mobile and collaboration systems, and learning space technology support.

  • WiscNet provides research and education networking services to public and private higher education, K12 school districts, libraries, municipalities, and hospitals throughout Wisconsin, and will host this session at their beautiful facility in Madison.

Reignite your passion for teaching and learning!

The Sparks! Innovation Showcase features new ideas, innovative practices and celebrates the “intrepid educator innovator” in each of us!

This Sparks! Innovation Showcase Series for Educators is made possible by WeThinkBig, with support from local partners and the TOSA Foundation
