This entirely online program equips K-20 teachers, administrators, and corporate trainers to keep pace with the demands of virtual instruction and Web-enhanced classrooms. By being immersed in the online environment students learn from both a teacher and student perspective. Those who want to teach online and/or include online components within the traditional classroom will be interested in this program.
After completing the certificate students are eligible to apply to the Master of Science degree in Educational Technology and, if accepted, apply these completed courses towards that degree.
To be accepted into the program, a student must have a Bachelor’s degree with a minimum overall GPA of 2.50 (based on 4.00). Students may have an undergraduate degree in any area.
Note: The Graduate Certificate in Online Teaching and Learning does not include certification to teach in a K-12 setting. A certificate is an award of completion. Certification is awarded by the state, authorizing an individual to teach in a K-12 school. If you do not have certification to teach but wish to do so then contact the certification office to determine what additional course work would be required.
