The Post-baccalaureate Certificate for Instructional Technology prepares educators to use technology effectively in their schools and to provide instructional leadership and technical support to other educators who use computer technology. Designed for teachers, resource persons and administrators at all grade levels (K-12), the sequence in instructional technology offers a unique opportunity to develop comprehensive knowledge and experience in the educational applications of computers and related technologies. The primary purpose of this certificate program is to meet the growing need for highly qualified core curriculum teachers, instructional technology support teachers and associated administrative personnel. The program requires six three-credit hour courses. In addition, prerequisites for the program require that students must be licensed K-12 teachers or administrators with a minimum of two years of classroom experience, who have completed TEDU 507 or provide evidence of mastery level of the requirements of that class. The program is committed to providing access to technology so that hands-on experience is offered in every class and participants produce instructional material that can be immediately integrated into the classroom.
