Technology, Innovation & Pedagogy
Educational professionals and classroom teachers must be able to navigate the emerging technologies that drive global interactions and apply content knowledge in complex interconnected ways. To conquer these challenges, we imagine a learning environment that moves away from the existing print based, teacher-driven, compartmentalized approach to education. We challenge the existing approaches of higher education instruction by proposing a newly conceptualized vision of education that includes innovative academic programs that infuse technology and disciplinary literacy, and community spaces on and off campus that embrace the UNC strategic framework of integrating academics, research, and community.
In addition to the graduate programs, Educational Technology offers courses in technology-rich pedagogy for teacher preparation programs in the School of Teacher Education.
