The emphasis will be on developing skills to help classroom teachers successfully integrate technology into the everyday curriculum.

Self-Paced Online Course
The Campus Technology Specialist Certification is a self-paced online program. In previous years, students were expected to attend scheduled webinars. In this new system, participants can begin anytime and go at their own speed throughout the program.
After you enroll, TCEA will send a welcome email outlining the course requirements, including a link to your individual portfolio website. You will receive a separate program invitation email from Canvas, which will let you access your sessions. The sessions are called modules and must be moved through in sequential order. The modules can be found below.
Participants have 12 months to complete the required course hours. Once your coursework, final project and/or portfolio are completed, your program coordinator will provide you with feedback. Upon successful completion of all requirements, you will receive a framed certificate.
Required Courses: 26 hours
Final Project: 8 hours
