Certificate | Technology Learning

The Technology Learning Certificate (TLC) Program is designed for practicing PreK-12 educators who are interested in learning how to effectively integrate technology into their professional practice and better support learning communities with their students. The program uses an integrated framework to help cultivate a habit of mind for conducting action research in authentic classroom settings to better understand critical problems of practice, as well as for thinking about issues of technology literacy (NETS) and curriculum design as the interconnection between technology, pedagogy and content knowledge.

The TLC is a technology-based distance education program, therefore basic technology skills, a recent multimedia computer system (e.g. with camera and microphone) and broadband Internet connection are required to successfully participate and complete the coursework.
