The Haileybury Microcredential in Agile Learning Design helps teachers and educational professionals develop insights into the Agile philosophy and apply it to the design and delivery of learning materials, and more broadly to professional practice.
We have developed the microcredential in collaboration with technology innovation company DiUS.
Aimed at teachers and educational professionals, the microcredential's learning outcomes are the ability to understand, articulate and explain Agile concepts and the practical application of Agile values, principles and tools in professional educational practice. The microcredential is personalized and self-directed and is competency-based, professionally-embedded and practical.
It consists of 6 short modules, both concurrent and consecutive, that blend a variety of learning modes including interactive webinars, self-directed research, access to curated online content, peer-learning and experiential inquiry. The minimum time commitment required to complete the microcredential is around 22 hours.
Participation provides entry to a vibrant community of Agile practitioners in education and other industries.
Working with Agile practitioner and coach Pete Cohen from DiUS, we will introduce the basic concepts of Agile through a series of practical activities. You will learn about the core values, principles and practices of Agile.
Using our carefully curated content, you will explore in detail how Agile works, how is it is used in a variety of industries, different approaches to Agile and the reasons why Agile is so widely used.
HOW CAN WE
Through a series of online peer-sharing and reflection activities, you will work with peers across education to explore a series of questions about Agile and how it can be used in an education context.
You will engage in dialogue with expert Agile practitioners in a series of interactive webinars, and hear from experts worldwide about the practical use of Agile in a variety of industries.
HOW CAN I
You will engage in a process of guided experiential inquiry into your own professional practice, analysing, documenting and reflecting on your findings.
WHAT HAVE I
To draw together your key learnings and demonstrate your understanding of Agile, you will create a reflective portfolio consisting of three short videos.
"...we’ll equip teachers with tools and practices so that they can experience firsthand the benefits of working in an agile way. Reflection and continuous improvement are other core agile principles, and the microcredential has been designed to create a space for this to happen so that participants can support each other as they experiment with the process.”
The Haileybury Microcredential in Agile Learning Design is part of the HaileyburyX mission to build online courses not just for Haileybury students, but for ELC-12 students anywhere in the world.
The microcredential supports our mission by helping our teachers, and the whole school community, learn about how we can best use technology to deliver outstanding learning experiences.
