Gain a competitive edge and critical training with this forward-looking program.
This non-degree program leading to Initial license in Instructional Technology gives you a foundation in 21st Century teaching and learning. Assessment, digital media, supporting all learners with technology, human development, and designing curriculum that integrates technology are covered in this dynamic program. In the capstone course, you synthesize knowledge gained throughout the program, and a full-semester practicum allows you to apply knowledge directly to a classroom.
This course investigates use of classroom assessments in support of student learning. Participants will explore a broad range of assessment strategies as well as technologies that support assessment “for,” contrasted with “of,” student learning. Topics such as high stakes testing, standards alignment and common core standards, and big data analytics are examined through student-led inquiry and discussion. Formative and summative assessment as well as personalized learning for diverse learners are key areas of this course.
