Academic Technology Integration - Certificate

Students will strengthen their efficacy in the digital literacies that increasingly form the backbone of our society with a one year Academic Technology Certificate. Teachers who complete this certificate may not use digital tools more often at the end of it, rather they use the tools they have differently. Shift the focus from the technology to the creativity, critical thinking, and student agency teachers can foster when the digital operates quietly behind the surface.

Curriculum

The EDUC classes are offered online and the LIS courses are taught on the St. Paul campus in the evenings or on weekends - with online assignments as well.
