Technology Leadership Certificate

Innovate Instruction to Engage Learners

OVERVIEW

This fully web-based, 9-hour accelerated graduate certificate program is geared toward providing educators with the skills and knowledge needed to be effective leaders in technology. Principals, superintendents and technology leaders currently in roles as administrators as well as teachers who seek to take more of a leadership role in their district will benefit from this certificate.

As educators move toward the demands of the more technology-enhanced classroom, technology leaders are increasingly required to make high-stakes decisions about hardware, software and programs at the campus and district level. Yet, many administrators have not been exposed to pedagogy of technology enhanced student-centered classrooms and do not feel prepared to model and lead in the technology integrated environment. This Technology Leadership in Education Certificate will serve to fill the gap that has occurred from the high demand for more effective technology integrated learning. All of the courses from this graduate certificate are fully transferrable into the Master of Education in Educational Technology.
