What Sets UM-Flint's Educational Technology (MA) Program Apart?
The program is flexible and relevant for current and future education professionals of all types such as teachers, instructional technologists, educational administrators, instructional designers in companies and non-profit organizations. Teaching certification is not required for admission, though Michigan teaching certificate holders can earn an NP (Teaching with Technology) endorsement with 21 credits, as part of the MA program or independently.
The program offers two tracks: (1) "Developer" for those who want to learn how to design pedagogically sound, innovative programs, applications, and media for the web, mobile devices, and other platforms with a focus on practical uses in classrooms and other learning environments. (2) "Curriculum & Instruction" for those who want to focus on meaningful use of technology but not as much time on designing software or educational media.
All courses are offered online.
FOCUS ON INNOVATION
The Educational Technology program empowers aspiring educational leaders to focus on the design of innovative educational projects within learning environments, and build a long-term network of creative educators.
Educational technology courses are taught by highly experienced professionals who bring real-world knowledge and experiences to their instruction. To help ensure your success in the program, our faculty experts make themselves available to you online as well as in person.
As part of the world-renowned University of Michigan system, UM-Flint can tap additional resources, expertise, and contacts at our sister campuses in Dearborn and Ann Arbor to assist our students, their research, and other initiatives.
