CUES, in partnership with the UETN and Southern Utah University, is providing an endorsement in Educational Technology.   edtech
 
Registration for Fall 2019 Courses opens August 1st.   Courses are available to all educators, not only to those enrolled in the endorsement.  ANY teacher can take any course at any time it is being offered.  Courses are ideal for networking, content knowledge, graduate credit, and/or relicensure hours!  Click here to see the courses currently being offered by CUES.  Or, check out the highlighted courses below, and clicking the course title will take you to the registration page.  In addition, go to uen.catalog.instructure.com for a listing of all available UEN courses being offered.  Please note that the CUES-taught courses will not be listed on the UEN site, but are private listing and will need to be registered for via the corresponding links below.
 
Are you interested in the Educational Technology Endorsement Program? Submit this form.  More specific information will be sent to you after signing up.  The endorsement signup is ongoing and can be done anytime. Before beginning the endorsement, please complete this Ed. Tech Endorsement Pre-Survey. Upon completion of the ETEP we ask that you then complete this post-survey.*  Here is the USBE Educational Technology Endorsement Application that will need to be submitted to UEN after completion of all coursework.
 
The Educational Technology Endorsement Program (ETEP) consists of 18 credit hours: 9 one-credit courses through UEN and 3 three-credit courses from SUU. This endorsement can be completed entirely through online courses, but in person and Flex (a combination of online and in-person) courses are also available.  Most participants take about 2 years to complete all requirements, though it can be done in a single year.  However, the endorsement must be completed within three years from when it is started.  Courses may be taken with the CUES trainer or any other UEN trainer.  However, courses offered through CUES will only be available to Regional employees and will require an access code or the direct link to register for them, thus eliminating the problem of courses being full.  The highlighted courses below are currently being offered by CUES, and each is linked to the corresponding course registration page.  Or, this link will take you to the CUES Canvas Catalog where you'll also be able to register for courses.

Educators are increasingly expected to exhibit skills and knowledge of how to effectively use technology to enhance student learning. The UEN Educational Technology Endorsement Program is grounded in the ISTE Standards for Educators and the Utah Effective Teaching Standards. Educators completing the endorsement will have gained these skills and knowledge. Each credit earned in the program translates to a 5000 level graduate credit from SUU, or USBE credit on MIDAS.  Credits can also be used for relincensure hours or salary lane changes.  Coursework can also be applied towards a Master's degree program from Southern Utah University as well.  Continue below for an overview of possible course offerings and requirements.
 
Course information: Each UEN course counts as 1 credit hour while the SUU courses are 3 credit hours.  The UEN online courses are 6 weeks long and generally don't have a set "class time" to meet, but consist of weekly readings, videos, assignments, projects, and/or discussion posts to complete. On the other hand, the SUU courses are 12 weeks in length, and besides weekly assignments, it does have a weekly hour-long web conferencing component.  An in-person course is two days (15 hours) long, whereas a Flex course is 1 day in person, then 4 weeks online to complete any projects or assignments.  MOOC (Massive Open Online Courses) are open enrollment, limited instructor interaction, no due dates. You have until July 31 of each year to complete the MOOC course, but you can complete it as quickly as possible. (So if you enroll on August 1 you'll have a year complete the course requirements). 
 
Course registration: Registration for courses can take place anytime, barring the course isn't full, up to the start day of the course.  Courses are on a trimester-type setting, with new courses available for registration beginning August 1 for Fall courses, December 1 for Spring courses, and April 1st for Summer courses.  You'll be able to register for the courses taught by CUES via the link which will be sent to you, or by clicking the course name below.  In addition, you may search here for other courses taught by UEN.  Participants will need a UEN Canvas account, which is different than your district's Canvas instance account) in order to register.
 
Cost per credit: Excluding the three SUU courses, there is no cost to take any other of the ETEP courses**.  However, if graduate credit is desired from SUU then there is a $21.00 per credit processing fee payable to SUU AFTER the completion of each course.  SUU credit must be purchased for at least three of the UEN courses if continuing with the SUU Masters Degree.  The SUU IELE courses do carry a $23.00 per credit, $69/course, fee.  In other words, it would only cost $396 for the 18 graduate credits earned through the endorsement.

USBE Educational Technology Endorsement Application (pdf to be submitted after completion of all coursework)

Upon completion of your endorsement, please complete this Post Participant Survey*.  

*We have been asked to gather data on the effectiveness of the ETEP, and we appreciate your honest responses to the pre- and post-surveys.  Note that your name is simply being asked so we can compare pre- and post data, and will not be shared with your school or District.

**There is a $50 charge to take to CMaP workshop but does include a GPS unit for you to keep.  Also, the SUU courses do have required textbooks.  Two of the three courses have the books in .pdf form embedded within the course, however, the other one does not.  But this book will be available in the CUES Overdrive Library. If you'd like a hard copy of any book the prices are roughly $25.00 each.
