Getting Started for Educators or Others Interested in Earning a SIM Micro-credential

Note: You will need to work with a SIM Professional Developer to engage in earning these micro-credentials; however, anyone can “join the badge” (see Content Enhancement credentials here, Learning Strategies credentials here) and examine the requirements for earning a micro-credential.

  1. Submit the SIM Micro-credential Form to KUCRL. Include your name and email address. You will receive an email invitation from Badge List to join the badge.
  2. Click on the link in the invitation. It will take you to the micro-credential page on the Badge List website.
  3. Click on the green “Join This Badge” button near the top right-hand side of the page. You will join the micro-credential as a “Learner.”
  4. Connect with a SIM Professional Developer who will guide and coach you through the process of earning the credential:
  5. Post the required evidence for the micro-credential as planned with your professional developer. Read the technical tips and instructions about posting evidence in Badge List in the “Badge Overview” or in the FAQ
  6. Notify your SIM Professional Developer when your evidence is ready for review.
  7. Watch your email for notification that your micro-credential has been awarded.
  8. Post/share your credential publicly!

Have you attended a SIM Professional Development Session in the past that you'd like to earn a credential for?

  • Simply submit the SIM Micro-credential Form to KUCRL. Include your name and email address. You will receive an email invitation from Badge List to join the badge. Once you've logged in and filled in your evidence, we'll award you the credential.
