Independent Studies

Independent Studies are the NCMA’s version of micro-credentials, a form of personalized, self-directed professional development in which teachers demonstrate mastery of a specific topic or approach to learning. Independent Studies are housed online and do not require onsite attendance at programs. Participants can earn up to 1-1.5 CEUs depending on the topic. Topics currently include Introduction to Arts Integration and Supporting Literacy through Arts Integration.
