Program Information

Program Description

Full Description

The Teaching and Learning with Technology undergraduate certificate provides students with the tools to acquire the knowledge and concrete skills to deploy educational technology theories and strategies in multiple fields while working at educational institutions, communication-related companies, public health entities and other industries.

This certificate is for both students in an education or non-education field. Education students will strengthen their know-how in learning innovations while being exposed to interdisciplinary stimuli and references and expanding their professional and academic horizon. Non-education students will access the most recent best practices in educational technology, applying them in their own field of reference and beyond.
