The Teaching with Technology Certificate (TWT) is a non-credit certificate showing that an instructor or teaching assistant has demonstrated the innovative use of technology in teaching. In this program, certificates are awarded by individual departments based on both educational and subject matter criteria.
The TWT program allows you the freedom to choose the training and timeline that best suits your goals; there are no required courses.
As a TWT program participant, you create a Web-based portfolio showcasing your knowledge, skills, and achievements using technology for teaching. The portfolio is then reviewed by a committee within your academic unit. Once the portfolio is approved, The Graduate School or the Office of Human Resources awards the certificate. This portfolio is very individualized and is a representation of the philosophy, knowledge, accomplishments, and competencies of its creator.
