Technology Enhanced Learning (M.S.E.)
Technology pervades your students' lives in every grade. Use this technology to your benefit by integrating it into your classroom in the most effective ways. Our concentration prepares you to integrate technology into your own teaching and to assist other professionals in their schools — making you an invaluable asset for your school community.
Specifically, our courses focus on helping you increase P-12 student learning in the context of a technology-enhanced, problem-based learning environment. All of our programs provide enriching learning experiences to support your continued development of critical reflection, enhancement of professional practice, and meaningful contributions to the community.
The concentration in technology-enhanced learning enables you to take this development and implement it in a way students readily consume information.
Degree candidates for the Technology Enhanced Learning M.S.E. are also eligible to participate in the Lalanne Program. The Lalanne Program offers graduate students a unique opportunity to live in a communal setting with fellow teachers while pursuing their studies. It also provides a living stipend and loan deferment.
