Digital Educator Recognition Program
MassCUE would like to recognize educators as lifelong learners with our new micro-credentialing program. Earn up to four badge levels, along with added benefits to your MassCUE membership! Display badges earned proudly on your website, social media and other forms of digital communication!
This four-level program is available to all MassCUE members at no cost during the introductory roll out of the program. Many of the module tasks are embedded in the Hoonuit platform that is included in every MassCUE membership! After completion and review of each badge level, an educator will receive PDPs as well as a badge within a three-week period after completion and approval from the MassCUE PD Committee. We encourage participants to earn all four badges.
