  • Foundations of Technology in Education, TLPL 602 (Graduate Level), Hybrid

    • Summer 2019, Instructor of Record, Course did not run due to low enrollment

      This survey course tackles both theoretical and practical dimensions of technology in education. It will serve as an introduction to technology and the impact the ‘digital revolution’ is having and will have on education. Examples will be drawn from multiple disciplines. We will discuss what is meant by technology and explore research into how the digital revolution and emergence of concepts such as “Computational Thinking” might be impacting our role as educators. We will think through the impact that technology is having on teacher practices, student learning and motivation, and learning across distance and time. Issues around equity will be explored. We will end with considering what learning and education might look like in the future, given what we have learned. Time will be spent in hands- on exploration of various media, some directly designed for education, and others more indirectly related. Discussion will be based on these experiences with the media, plus empirical literature, and insights from key players in this field. After completing this course, students will have an understanding of the potential for the uses of technology for teaching and learning, identify the different roles technology can play, and be ready for a hands-on introduction to specific topics/tools/pedagogies related to teaching and learning with technology.

    • Fall 2019, Instructor of Record, Course did not run due to low enrollment

    • This course provides a concrete, hands-on introduction to teaching and learning with technology. We will explore digital technology and its impact on learning and institutions. We will consider big ideas of the field as well as specific types of learning technologies and pedagogies for use in K-12 classrooms. We will discuss K-12 teaching methods that address the interdisciplinary nature of technology integration. The course will draw on class discussions, inquiry, instructional technology, and collaborative lab-based activities and prepare you to merge technology with your current teaching practice. Assessment with and of technology will also be explored.

    • The Leadership Studies Certificate program is an interactive, dynamic theory to practice series of courses focused on learning leadership knowledge, skills and values in individual, partnership, groups, and communities contexts.  The capstone course builds upon the leadership literature, theory and experience foundation created in the previous five courses.  The leadership and complexity capstone course provides opportunities for advanced theory to practice work through application of adaptive leadership theory, analysis of your leadership experience course (LDR 3263), reflection on your personal leadership identity, and development of an integrated learning plan.  In the capstone course students will learn advanced leadership theory and come to understand their unique role creating change in their chosen profession and our larger society.  The course will be highly interactive with student engagement and integrated application as critical components to the learning process.  Systematic reflection on applied leadership issues and strategies is an important component of this course.
