Graduate Certificate in Classroom Technology Integrationist

A collaborative certificate between the University of Maine, the University of Maine Farmington, and the University of Southern Maine

Educators are increasing their use of technology across curriculum areas. The online Graduate Certificate in Classroom Technology Integrationist provides the knowledge and skills to integrate technology into teaching and learning. Students will learn how to advance student learning, creativity, and innovation in both face-to-face and virtual environments; design, develop, and evaluate authentic learning experiences and assessments using contemporary tools; and incorporate global societal issues and responsibilities in the digital age.

All work is based on ISTE standards and profiles.

Online and Engaged

All programs offered through the collaborative Instructional Technology programs are 100% online. As a faculty team, we have designed the courses to expect a high level of interaction and participation in an ongoing format. Many of our courses utilize synchronous video-conferencing sessions to encourage collaboration, discussion, and peer networking. We value the diverse backgrounds of the students in the program and encourage dynamic discussion and peer feedback from these various perspectives to enrich the learning experience. We expect consistent engagement with current research, course readings, and online materials, and clear communication with the faculty member.
