ACE Agile Administrators Microcredential Program

About the Microcredential

The ACE Agile Administrator Microcredential program is closed and no longer accepting new registrants.

Earn the ACE Agile Administrator Microcredential—developed in partnership with a coalition of experts and organizations dedicated to your success—by submitting a microcredential portfolio that shows others your agile expertise by documenting your thoughts and work in relationship to each of the six competencies outlined in the ACE Agile Administrators program. Portfolios will be assessed by a panel of experienced agile administrators; to ensure its rigor, the microcredential assessment is independently evaluated using the same standards ACE Learning Evaluations uses for college credit recommendations. You can then display the microcredential on your CV, résumé, LinkedIn profile, or elsewhere. The microcredential is valid for five years and may be renewed by revising and defending your digital portfolio.

The Portfolio Review Process

​To earn the ACE Agile Administrators Microcredential, you must compose and defend a digital portfolio that represents your philosophy and accomplishments as a leader of agile innovation in higher education. Completing learning pathways activities and learning circle mee​tings will generate material that may be incorporated into your digital portfolio, and you may also include artifacts from work you've done in your field and on your campus.

How to earn the ACE Agile Administrators Microcredential

  1. Compose a digital portfolio by reflecting on artifacts that document your thinking and work in relationship to each of the six competencies​
  2. Present and defend the portfolio to a panel of experienced agile administrators
What You'll Receive

​Upon completion of your portfolio review, you'll receive:

  1. An open digital badge—issued through Credly—signaling your achievement and optionally linking back to the evidence supporting it; this badge can be added to your LinkedIn profile or a website, shared via social media or email, and imported into any Open Badges infrastructure-compliant system
  2. A letter from ACE sent to your institution's president or another institutional leader of your choice; this letter can be included in applications and personal files that do not yet support digi​tal badges
  3. A special lapel pin you may wear to ACE Agile Administrators program summits, the ACE Annual Meeting, and other professional events
  4. The eligibility to serve on panels when agile administrators present and defend their digital portfolios ​
