The undergraduate Minor in Educational Technology is a 15-credit program that gives students an understanding of how to integrate technology in the classroom. Students explore new and emerging technologies that support learning and teaching and discover how technology within a teachers’ instructional practice can improve learning and teaching.

The EdTec Minor is specifically focused on secondary teacher education candidates who are looking to gain expertise in technology integration within teaching and learning contexts. The minor will prepare teacher education candidates to be leaders for technology integration within the instructional contexts where they will teach.

The EdTec Minor can be paired with the 15-credit Computer Education License addition which can make candidates more marketable in their job search by expanding their primary area of licensure. Courses below can count toward both the minor and the license.
