The Certificate of Achievement in Emerging Educational Technology Leadership is designed for students working in or planning for a leadership-focused career in K-12 education, extracurricular programs, or edtech development in for-profit and nonprofit organizations. Prerequisite skills in instructional design and use of common educational technologies are highly encouraged, but not required. Notably, this program is intended to assist educators and trainers in becoming leaders in their fields while remaining in their instructional spaces. The program seeks to provide an alternate pathway to teacher leadership besides administration. Students will complete 18 units of coursework in Instructional Design and Technology, with coursework specifically focusing on emerging technology trends, integration of edtech into curricular activities, evaluation of instructional programs, and data analysis tools. Upon completion of the program, students will be prepared to develop and support new education technology initiatives in schools, districts, counties, and communities, as well as lead other educators in the implementation of these initiatives.
