  • Interested In An Educational Technology Endorsement? Earn It Through SEDC

    Learn more about our online Educational Technology Endorsement Courses at SEDC

    SEDC is working in cooperation with the Utah Education Network (UEN), the Utah State Board of Education (USBE) and Southern Utah University (SUU) to provide professional learning opportunities to earn an Educational Technology Endorsement Program (ETEP) endorsement for teachers in our region. These courses will be held entirely online through the Canvas learning management system.

    The ETEP endorsement consists of 18 credit hours of courses: 3 3-credit core courses (9 credit hours) which are focused on many of the core concepts in educational technology integration. An additional 6 credits of courses focused on technology to support your curriculum, and 3 credits of courses where you use technology to enhance your professional practice are required as electives. These 5000-level credits will be awarded through SUU at a cost to participants of $23 per credit to record.

    Teachers following in-step with the SEDC ETEP plan will complete this endorsement in 2 years, but we plan on offering these courses on a continual rotating basis, so you are free to jump in anytime that you can. Credit earned in the program can also be used for salary lane changes. Coursework can be applied towards a Master’s degree program from either Southern Utah University or the University of Utah.

    Our next round of courses will begin September 6, 2018, but if you are interested you can join in at anytime. The courses offered during the 2018-2019 school year begin about every 2 months and run for 6 weeks. We will begin the 12-week core courses in early September 2019. Take a look at the upcoming courses we will offer!
