Program Description:

This 33-credit learning technologies concentration in the MEd in curriculum and learning program was recognized in 2010 by the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) for meeting their Technology Facilitator standards. Through course and field-based experiences, students explore the educational advantages and disadvantages of current and emerging information and communication technologies. Students gain an understanding of educational technologies and methods for effectively integrating technology into their own teaching and in preparation to serve as technology leaders/coaches who provide basic technical assistance, professional development, and mentoring for others who would like to use technology to support learning and assessment. Graduates in this concentration become expert classroom teachers, researchers, staff developers, and curriculum leaders in their schools and districts, with a commitment to promote twenty-first century learning skills in their students and to foster equity and diversity in the use of technology in their schools.

The program is challenging and includes a concentration-specific comprehensive exit requirement as well as an educational research master's thesis that explores the impact on P-12 learning. Up to 9 credits in the program may be taken for non-degree credit. Appropriate non-degree credits may eventually be applied to the master’s degree. Graduate assistantships are available for full-time students. In addition, a separate five-course certificate program is available for post-master's students who wish to become educational technology leaders in their schools or districts.
