Ready to take charge of your professional growth?
Introducing VEA VirtualEd: It’s both an amazing new member benefit and an opportunity for you to take control of your own growth as an educator!
Through VEA VirtualEd, you can earn micro-credentials in subjects and skills of your choosing—the ones most helpful to you and your students. And if you’re a VEA member, you can do it for free! Non-members can still earn micro-credentials, but must pay a $75 scoring fee. If you’re a non-member and began your micro-credential process before January 1, 2021, you’re grandfathered in for the free process on that credential. The computer science stack of micro-credentials will remain free for all Virginia educators through a partnership between the VEA and CodeVA.
Micro-credentials are a competency-based digital form of certification and they’re quickly creating a new wave in the PD world. The process is entirely self-driven, starting with identifying an area in which you’d like to know more. Then, choose from among the micro-credentials available through VEA VirtualEd and complete the requirements, which are generally job-embedded and include classroom-based activities.
Virginia now accepts micro-credentials for re-licensure points, and VEA is working for more general use and acceptance in areas like professional advancement and compensation.
