Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Education - Certificate

The Department of Teaching, Learning and Culture offers a certificate in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Education. The graduate STEM certificate provides teacher-practitioners specializing in grades 6-12 with an opportunity to expand their skills and methods for engaging students in rich, powerful STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) learning experiences in a cutting-edge online environment. The focus is on topics of importance to teachers and districts within a high-impact, two-semester timeline.

This program is also approved for delivery via asynchronous distance education technology.

The STEM Education Certificate is a graduate-level 12-hour certificate program offered by the Department of Teaching, Learning and Culture in the College of Education and Human Development. It is designed for K-12 science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) teacher-practitioners. Individuals completing the certificate will gain knowledge and skills in designing learning experiences integrating STEM content and pedagogy: elements of engineering design, mathematics (algebra) for engineering, research on teaching and learning (including cyber learning) from the learning sciences, and STEM-appropriate integrative pedagogical approaches (problem-based and inquiry learning).

Admission and program information is available on the department's website.
