If you are earning the Educational Technology Specialist certificate, you will be required to complete two credit hours of practicum in EDT 767. Practicum hours are not required for the graduate degree; however, all credits earned as part of the certificate can be applied to the graduate degree, where the practicum would be considered an elective.
Our practicum is a field experience based course which will require you to spend a minimum of 20 hours in a working environment where educational technology services and programs are being used or developed.
Your practicum hours may include working in:
- school media services
- university programs
- development centers
- industry, government or medical programs
- educational TV studios
- computer facilities or other special programs
For more information about practicum, contact Dr. Ching-Wen Chang at 417-836-5353.
