Multiple units from the University of Texas at Austin were simultaneously, yet independently, interested in developing micro credential programs.  Not unlike a game of telephone, word spread and folks invested in the development of micro credential programs started finding one another through a well-known and respected senior level educational technologist.  Under the leadership of a vice provost, interested professional staff and faculty were brought together and over a series of bimonthly meetings, jointly created a plan to organize the roll out of UT branded badges.  We will share our experiences of simultaneously working on the university working group and developing micro credential frameworks to support our own units (School of Business and College of Natural Sciences) from our points of view as professional staff and faculty tasked with developing programs to support the unique needs of our units.  We look forward to both sharing what we have learned and learning from others.
