Marlboro College Graduate School

Certificate in Educational Technology


If you are a teacher who wants to get more "techie," or a techie who wants to get more "teacherly," Marlboro's 15-credit certificate is the gateway to bridging the digital gap and becoming more effective in your workplace. It is appropriate for those who want to create better online classes or training resources, as well as those who find themselves acting as intermediaries between "computer people" and everyone else. Marlboro's Certificate in Educational Technology is a valuable link to licensed Vermont teachers who want to reach their "master's + 15" salary scale, as well as teachers who want to receive Vermont's  Educational Technology Specialist endosement (with three additional credits).

Courses in Marlboro's certificate program cover the design, implementation, and evaluation of educationally oriented technology. The focus is effective integration of technology teaching tools into schools, colleges, nonprofits, and companies.

Nine of your 15 credits will be devoted to core courses on the rich history and learning theories behind educational technology, current media design and production tools and techniques, and how to use learning management systems effectively. Six credits of electives allow a flexible focus on subjects such as instructional design, K-12 integration, management, or research.

Classes for the certificate program meet every other weekend, year round with online work in between. Some electives are entirely online. Completion can be in as little as one year, or as long as you wish. 

All courses can be applied to Marlboro's 30-credit EdTech master's degree (MAT), provided a student transfers to that degree before completing the certificate. 12 credits can be applied to a master's once this certificate is complete. If you are a licensed Vermont teacher, all courses count  towards the 18 credit Educational Technology Specialist endorsement that is awarded by the Vermont Department of Education through transcript review.
