Graduate Certificate in STEM Education and Emerging Technologies

This graduate certificate provides science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) professionals, practitioners, and educators with opportunities to understand, assess, evaluate, and use technologies to enhance and network learning within and about their specific content areas and needs. STEM educators in community colleges, higher education, graduate, and professional schools are also being challenged to better understand learners, educational theories, and methods of assessment and evaluation as well as to integrate 21st century skills and technologies so they can be more effective in their teaching.
