Certificate Program Goal

Prepare educational administrators to lead development and implementation of a comprehensive integration of technology to promote excellence and support transformation throughout their organization. Following ISTE NETS-A guidelines, the certificate curriculum seeks to inspire and facilitate a vision of purposeful change that maximizes use of digital-age resources to meet and exceed learning goals, support effective instructional practice, and maximize performance of district and school leaders. An overview of the certificate program is available online.

This learner-centered, instructor-facilitated program is a hands-on learning experience that will enable you to experience educational technologies and the challenges of systems change in your real-world context.

The course modules are designed in a hybrid instructional model. Half of the sessions are designed for face-to-face interaction and the remainder of the modules are designed as asynchronous, online modules. The face-to-face class meeting dates for Educational Technology for Administrators are:
  1. September 8
  2. September 22
  3. October 13
  4. November 10 (tentative)
  5. December 8
During the intervening weeks, participants are expected to complete the course objectives through self-directed, online resources and collaborations with peers and instructors. You can expect to commit the same amount of learning time every week regardless of instructional mode.
