Teacher Microcredentials

This is my latest illustration for ASCD’s Education Update newsletter. The title of the article is: Will Teacher Microcredentials Upend the $8 Billion PD Industry?” It talks about how microcredentials (or badges for personalized learning) is a growing trend that threatens to shake up the professional development industry.

I had a lot of fun working on this piece because it is a nod to boy/girl scouts. I was never a boy scout but the collector in me always loved that they got to earn badges by completing different tasks. Designing and illustrating these badges took more time than I had anticipated, but overall, I’m happy with the hand stitched look and the final outcome.


Learning at 120 BPMs

This is a quick GIF that I made for ASCD’s Express e-newsletter. Each issue has a theme and this theme was “Learning at 120 BPMs”—about infusing movement and activity into learning.

This is actually one of two illustrations that I have done with loose leaf notebook paper this month. Stay tuned for the other piece which is guaranteed to make you smile.
