Our graduate program in Educational Technology prepares educators to put theory into practice in service to the wise integration of technology. We offer an online Two-Summers program (click for overview) culminating in a Master of Arts (MA) degree or Sixth Year Degree (SD). Two Summers recruits students each Spring for new cohorts that begin each July. Deadline for Summer 2018 admission is May 15, 2018. Our program targets learning outcomes based on national standards, and addresses such emerging technologies as web-based learning, problem-based learning, situated learning, e-portfolios, and "serious" games and simulations in education (particularly online multiplayer avatar-based games) as well as assistive technologies for all students and the digital work and learning literacies associated with the use of technology in learning. We offer an innovative online Two-Summers MA/SD program designed for the working educator. This program features on-campus work during Summer Year 1, all online work during Fall and Spring semesters, and final coursework on campus during Summer Year 2. Course offerings create a standard Plan of Study for all cohort students. State-of-the-art facilities include a BYOD environment with smartboard classrooms, Blackboard-based course management software, and custom mobile and online tools for learning. Costs are consistent with policy set by the Graduate School and online admission application is encouraged. International Students: Click here for links to helpful resources and information.
