August 28, 2012

CUE Innovative Educators Advanced Studies CertificateWalnut Creek, Calif. - Computer-Using Educators (CUE) Inc. is proud to unveil its first-ever Innovative Educators Advanced Studies Certificate. A collaboration of CUE’s Professional Development Program and Fresno Pacific University (FPU), this program offers participants 18 graduate rigor units, Leading Edge Online and Blended Teacher Certification as well as a certificate indicating participation in the program and an iPad or Android tablet. All course administration will be handled by FPU.

“CUE members have been asking for higher education credit for our courses for years,” says Danny Silva, CUE’s Professional Development Coordinator. “It is gratifying to finally be able to offer a program that will give teachers, administrators and other ed tech professionals the credit and units they need in these areas.”

The Advanced Studies Certificate brings together the best of the CUEtoYOU workshops and the best of Fresno Pacific’s own online professional development courses. The certificate program will have three start times throughout the calendar year, and participants will sign up via FPU website for a specific cohort. Each cohort will require mandatory online coursework, independent work, group work, presentations and participation in online synchronous interactive workshops. Each certificate cohort period lasts 27 weeks.

The list of courses that CUE will offer within the Advanced Studies Certificate curriculum are as follows:

  • Innovative Pedagogies (3 units)
  • Google & YouTube (1 unit)
  • Leading Edge Online and Blended Teacher Certification (3 units)
  • Mobile Technology (iPad or Android specific) (1 unit)
  • Project Development (1 unit).

The remaining nine units will be earned by completing three FPU independent study, continuing education courses that align with the purposes of the certificate.

Registration is now open to all teachers, administrators, district personnel or anyone else interested in obtaining higher education credit. More details at www.cue.org/ieasc and at FPU.
