The Lamar University Certificate in Technology Enhanced Teaching

Professional Development is key in ensuring that teaching staff get the very best from the investment made by the institution in the deployment of technology. Not only do teaching staff gain a better understanding of what the technology has to offer but also on how to capitalise on the use of tools such as those within Office 365 to enhance their teaching practice.
This ‘Certificate in Technology Enhanced Teaching’ has been developed in partnership with the Center for Educational Innovation and Digital Learning, and the College of Education and Human Development at Lamar University, a Carnegie Research University based in Texas and consists of two elements. The completion of 3 self-study online courses and the production of an ePortfolio of evidence of technology use in teaching. Successful participants are awarded a non-credit bearing certificate which can be converted into full Lamar University credits, representing 1/6th towards their online M.Ed. in Digital Learning and Leading.

Programme Description

Participants in this programme begin by taking 3 online courses from Microsoft: ‘Teaching with Technology (Basics)’, ‘Teaching with Technology (2016)’ and ‘21st Century Learning Design’. These generic, professional development courses are designed to assist educators in their understanding of how technology can be used to enhance 21st Century education. The courses are aligned with the Technology Literacy learning objectives of the UNESCO ICT-Competency Framework for Teachers (UNESCO ICT-CFT).
Participants also produce an ePortfolio of digital assets that demonstrates their understanding of the issues covered in the course materials; the application of what they have learned to their teaching practice; and the impact that this implementation has had on their students learning. This ePortfolio is assessed by a faculty member of Lamar University, a grade awarded and a certificate issued.
Completion of the three online courses will also allow participants to use the title ‘Microsoft Innovative Educator’ irrespective of the platform that participants are using (Apple, Microsoft or Google) and, for an additional fee can also sit the Microsoft Certified Educator and/or Google Certified Educator examination.
