The NMC Academy is a fresh approach to accelerate professional learning among educators, providing personalized and powerful online and offline experiences that inspire and transform teaching practices. The NMC Academy’s courses and events are hosted by a variety of education leaders and specifically designed for busy teachers and faculty, along with museum and library professionals. For every NMCA course or workshop that educational professionals complete, they receive digital badges to reflect their new skills. These badges are awarded via the Credly platform and are Open Credit, which means they are easy to share publicly across different websites.
