EdTech Teaching Certificate Program (ETCP)

All seats have been filled for the IAP 2018 EdTech Teaching Certificate Program (ETCP). You can still JOIN THE WAITLIST and we will contact you if space becomes available.

The EdTech Teaching Certificate Program (ETCP) was created for MIT graduate students and postdoctoral researchers who have ALREADY COMPLETED  the Kaufman Teaching Certificate Program (KTCP) and wish to learn more about the selection and use of educational technology in and outside of class to support student learning.

The program focuses on both common and more innovative uses of educational technology in higher education, exposes participants to an array of tools, and allows participants to explore tools of interest to them.

By the end of the ETCP students will be able to:

  • Evaluate various educational technologies with regard to their suitability for content delivery and formative assessment.
  • Select appropriate technology tools to enhance or transform the learning environment.
  • Interpret data collected by educational technologies to make just-in-time instructional decisions.

This three-session program is designed for participants with a variety of interests and career goals: from those who wish to use educational technology to support their teaching at MIT, to those who are planning careers in academe where the use of educational technology is becoming the norm.

After fulfilling the program requirements, participants receive a certificate and letter from the Teaching and Learning Lab outlining the program and confirming completion the program. The letter can be submitted with applications for teaching positions as evidence of a commitment to the teaching enterprise.

If you have questions about the program after reviewing this site, please contact Leann Dobranski (leann@mit.edu) by email or by phone.
