If you’re an educator or technology coach eager to become highly proficient in using up-to-the- minute technologies to help your students learn, this is for you.
This summer, National Louis University is offering the Learning Technologies Credential, which is designed for educators and technology coaches who want to build their capacity, teaching strategies, and teaching resources through hands-on experiences with cutting-edge learning technologies.
It will prepare technology coaches and educators who want to empower their students to creatively apply 21st century technology skills to real-world communications, critical analysis, and problem-solving.
Earning a Learning Technologies Credential will equip you with a skill set that’s in demand with employers, bolstering your employment opportunities. The courses can also be applied towards degree credit in National Louis University’s Learning Technologies M.Ed.

Four courses are required to earn the credential. You may also take one, two or three individual courses this summer and complete your credential at a future date.
