Technology in the Classroom and Beyond Certificate of Completion

The Technology in the Classroom and Beyond Certificate Program was developed as a way for faculty to enhance their teaching through emerging technologies while expanding their skill set.

To earn a certificate, participants will complete six hours of training through courses from each of three topic areas, for a total of 18 hours.

Substitutions for CPE courses (such as discipline-specific conferences, seminars, workshops, and classes) will be considered satisfactory for completion of one-half or 50 percent of the course requirement in each of the three topic areas. Permission for substitutions is requested through the department chairperson or supervisor. If feasible, participants can also work with a mentor to customize an individualized program.

Certificate program courses are designed by in-house academic professionals as well as professionals from the community and are offered throughout the school year.
