Certificate in Leadership in Educational Technology

While large schools and districts all require Educational Technology Directors, there currently exists little formal training to equip candidates with a strong knowledge of the technical (hardware) and leadership (budgeting and staffing) aspects required to be a leader in the field. This program's goals have been specifically aligned with the nationally recognized Consortium for School Networking (COSN) framework and the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) administrator standards. Additionally, the certificate's program of study is designed to help students prepare to successfully complete COSN's Educational Technology Leadership certificate exam, which is increasingly being sought by districts when hiring for technology management positions. The design of this certificate also allows students to continue on to the Master of Arts or Sixth Year Certificate programs if they choose. This certificate is offered entirely online.
