We designed this plan for graduates who are educators and would like to become educational technology leaders within their school, district, or other professional setting. Our goals are to help you develop expertise and skill integrating educational technologies within any learning environment: from pre-kindergarten to college and from in-person classes to distant-learning ones.

Candidates in this program of study move from educational technology facilitators to educational technology leaders. To successfully complete this master program of study, candidates must demonstrate their understandings of content, pedagogy, and professional knowledge and skills through their performance on key assessments-which are embedded in all ETC courses and presented within the Capstone Portfolio.
