The Interactive Technology and Pedagogy Certificate program is designed to provide intellectual opportunities and technical training that enable Graduate Center doctoral students to think creatively and critically about the uses of instructional technology to improve teaching, learning, and research.
It aims to better prepare doctoral students for life and work in the contemporary university and advances students' skills as creators and users of technology-based educational resources.
The certificate's nine-credit sequence of courses provides theoretical, historical, philosophical, literary, and sociological perspectives on technology and pedagogy in the classroom and in academic research. Though the program draws on the discipline-based expertise of many doctoral faculty members, it also strives to build a collective and interdisciplinary conversation about the broad implications of emerging education technology for intellectual work and classroom practices. The word cloud represents the interdisciplinary nature of ITP students.
Possession of the ITP certificiate should represent to potential employers a scholar well versed in the theoretical and practical aspects of using academic technology at the university level, and assist doctoral students in their pursuit of employment in the academy and beyond.
