Graduate Certificate Programs

Our Graduate Certificate Programs are three-course [9 credit] credentialsdesigned to meet the needs of educators who would like to think deeply about methods and mindsets for integrating technologies in their work. Graduate Certificates are a great way to gain advanced knowledge and skills in just one or two semesters.

Certificate courses introduce dozens of tech tools but the central focus is always on how to use these tools to support learning. Our Certificate courses emphasize the creation of innovative products. They are designed to push limits, and to inspire educators to try new things in their own teaching contexts. Certificate courses also emphasize the power of networked collaboration and learning so that students can remain connected to the vital MAET learning network for the duration of their Certificate Program and beyond. Importantly, Certificate courses enable students to build a compelling professional portfolio that showcases their deep engagement with ideas and technologies.
