Micro-Credential PLC: Developing LGBTQ Anti-Bias Curriculum

Developing LGBTQ Anti-Bias Curriculum

Meeting late summer/early fall 2023

Registration due: Aug. 18
Cost: Free for MNEA members, $75 for non-members


“A micro-credential is a short, competency-based recognition. NEA offers over 175 micro-credentials that have been created by educators for educators.” (NEA)

Nothing great is ever done alone so MNEA is offering a Micro-Credential Professional Learning Community (PLC) to work on the Developing LGBTQ Anti-Bias Curriculum summer micro-credential. This is a micro-credential offered during the summer because it does not require students to collect evidence in order to support the successful completion of the credential.

This micro-credential and PLC work is for any educator who wishes to use anti-bias curriculum resources that are inclusive of LGBTQ issues.

The PLC will meet virtually 5-6 times to collaborate and guide your work through the micro-credential. These PLC meetings will be led by an MNEA facilitator.
