aha! Process is now offering professional development micro-credentials, which allow participants to learn at their own pace, at their most convenient time, and in their area(s) of interest.

Micro-credentialing is a way of demonstrating mastery of a very specific skill. Micro-credential awards can enhance immediate work needs or future career pathways. They are beneficial to degree holders who want to enhance their resumes, as well as those seeking professional opportunities through alternative entryways.

The micro-credentialling process includes:

  1. Selecting a topic of interest
  2. Completing the tasks required by an entity offering micro-credentials on that topic
  3. Submitting evidence of one’s work

When someone successfully completes micro-credential requirements, they earn a digital badge, which can be included in resumes, portfolios, and digital files.

Stackable micro-credentials are multiple, consecutive badges, which enable individuals to expand their expertise in particular areas.

aha! Process is currently offering the following micro-credential stacks:

  • 10 A Framework for Understanding Poverty micro-credentials that correspond with the 10 Actions outlined in the book
  • Four Bridges Out of Poverty micro-credentials that correspond with the four lenses for viewing poverty
