Learn about digitally-rich teaching and learning as part of courses and programs that can lead to additional credentials – and better position you as a leader in this area for your school.
New York State does not require K-12 teachers to have a specific certification in order to use technology in their teaching or serve as an technology instructional coach. However, NYS has recently approved an Advanced Certificate in Digitally-Rich Teaching at the University of Rochester’s Warner School of Education, thus providing another option for a higher education credential demonstrating expertise in this area.

Advanced Certificate in Digitally Rich Teaching in K-12 Schools
This 12-credit graduate program will prepare you to leverage technology in your teaching through a combination of coursework and practicum experiences. You will engage as both a learner and as a teacher in digitally-rich learning experiences, while exploring the implications of these experiences for the future of K-12 schools as well as your own teaching.
This flexible program includes only the following requirements:
- EDE484A: Digitally-Rich Teaching and Learning in K-12 Schools
- EDF490: Digitally-Rich Teaching Practicum
- A graduate teaching methods course in your area of specialization (many current teachers will be able to transfer this course from a previous program)
- A graduate elective course related to instructional technology
This program can be taken as a stand-alone or in conjunction with one of Warner’s teacher preparation programs or doctoral programs.
