Pathways and Programs Approved for Designation
BloomBoard’s Lead and Master Professional Educator Micro-Endorsements
are competency-based professional development programs composed of a stack of micro-credentials designed to improve instructional practices, content knowledge, and classroom management skills. A micro-credential is earned by demonstrating competence in a specific skill via a portfolio of evidence created through classroom practice.
A Master Professional Educator license designation is intended for a teacher who is choosing to lead primarily from the classroom, modeling a deep understanding of the complexities of classroom practice. Educators pursuing a Master Professional Educator license designation can choose between a foundational or blended learning focus:
Master Professional Educator Foundations
Foundations for Blended Learning
Boundless Learning Co-Teaching Micro-credential for Master Designation
The Boundless Learning Co-Teaching Professional Development offered by the Arkansas Co-Teaching Project and Johns Hopkins University’s Center for Technology in Education (CTE) offers instructional facilitators completing the program requirements to earn a micro-credential and apply for Lead Teacher designation. Evidence is submitted throughout the year-long professional development to Johns Hopkins University’s CTE for verification of competency through practice and application.
