The Instructional Technology Coordinator Certification leads to Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) #92 extended license as an Instructional Technology Coordinator.
This licensure program is available to individuals who hold a Wisconsin teaching license and have at least three years of teaching experience. Because the license is administrative, students must hold a master’s degree or its equivalent by program completion. The program assists the candidate to satisfy the Instructional Technology Coordinator and Administrator Standards (PI 34).
All candidates prepare, with guidance, a portfolio to verify that they have met the standards. Supporting material is derived from a combination of course work, knowledge, skill and experience.
Individuals currently holding the position of Instructional Technology Coordinator or a similar position may require little supporting course work and may base their portfolio largely on their experience. Students do not have to be enrolled in Stritch's Master of Education (M.E.) in Instructional Technology program, offered in a convenient online format, but have the option of doing so in order to meet the master’s requirement. Courses taken in pursuit of the Instructional Technology Coordinator certification may apply to fulfillment of the M.E. in Instructional Technology and, depending upon the courses, may also apply towards Instructional Library Media Specialist licensure.
