Graduate Certificate in Digital Teaching and Learning

In this 15 credit Graduate Certificate in Digital Teaching and Learning, educators will deepen their skills and critical knowledge of teaching and learning within networked, participatory digital culture.  Educators will learn digital pedagogical strategies that support deep learning and enable new modes of support for diverse learners.  Looking beyond the classroom, educators will also learn to prepare students for full participation in civic and cultural life that is increasingly mediated via participatory digital platforms. The Certificate can be taken as  a “stand alone” program for those who are not seeking a full graduate degree, or via a combination of M.Ed. electives plus  9 additional credits beyond the M.Ed.  The Certificate appears on UW transcripts.
