Certificate in Educational Technology & Distance Learning

The global health crisis has presented many challenges to our national education system's service delivery model. The shift to digital learning has become essential to provide continued access to education for our students in the "new normal," but it has not been an easy shift. As such, the School of Education now offers a fully-online Certificate in Educational Technology & Distance Learning to help K-12 teachers deliver effective online education. 

The goal of the online certificate program is to identify digital access barriers--geography, economics, infrastructure, experience with learning technologies, etc.--and potential solutions for both general and special education. K-12 teachers, educational support personnel, and paraprofessionals will learn how to create content, address the needs of all learners, and gain experience with assistive technologies. Coursework includes presentations, highly interactive modules, podcasts, and technology use cases that will provide educators with the knowledge required to improve their online pedagogy and successfully manage distance learning and teaching using evidence-based strategies.
