The Johns Hopkins University (JHU) School of Education and the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) are offering an 18-credit graduate certificate in School Administration and Supervision focusing on instructional technology to national and international audiences. This initiative is designed to prepare aspiring administrators and supervisors with effective strategies and tools to deal with issues regarding instructional technology while ensuring that all students, including students with diverse learning needs, succeed. ISTE has partnered with the Johns Hopkins University Center for Technology in Education (CTE) to deliver this certificate in an online format. The partnership between JHU and ISTE aims to maintain the depth and focus of the face-to-face School Administration and Supervision certificate offered through the Department of Teacher Development and Leadership, to adapt it to include a focus on instructional technology, and to offer it in a Web-based format that builds on CTE's research-based approach to online learning. The certificate launches with a required two-week online orientation kickoff in early June and continues for approximately one year, culminating with an internship. It is mandatory that students attend one of ISTE's National Conferences at either the start or end of their program. The work of the cohort of students is highlighted at the ISTE National Conference with a gallery walk, celebratory activities, and conference presentations. Upon successful completion of the year-long certificate program that combines five online courses offered in eight-week segments, a customized three-credit internship, and face-to-face work sessions, participants earn the 18-credit certificate from Johns Hopkins University and are prepared to meet the standards of the Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium (ISLLC), Educational Leadership Constituents Council (ELCC), and ISTE's National Educational Technology Standards (NETS-A). This 18-credit certificate may be taken as a stand-alone program; may be incorporated into the 39-credit master's degree in school administration and supervision; or may be combined with another graduate certificate program for a 33-39 credit master's degree in educational studies. In this program, students must attend one of the face-to-face residencies and complete five course that are each eight to nine weeks long. The internship course continues through the length of the program with the development of an electronic portfolio. The courses are fully facilitated and run on a rigorous weekly cycle of instruction. Students communicate frequently online in CTE's Electronic Learning Community (ELC) using tools such as discussion forum, chat, and email.
