Information Technology Basics

3 Units
In Person
Meet your cohort on Monday and spend each day of the institute completing half of this first of the required courses for the Supplemental Authorization. During the week, you will get to know your colleagues and instructors well as you all work through hands on exercises. Following the Institute, you will finish the remainder of this course online over the next four weeks.

This introductory course is designed to give educators the basic background in Information Technology to effectively lead in integrating technology into classroom instruction. Through this course, the student will learn the basic concepts of information systems and their application, and gain familiarity with the hardware, software, and terminology used within the IT field.

After registering/paying for the rest of the Computer Science Authorization required courses, you will resume the computer science authorization journey in Fall, 2020, with the second eight-week class, fully online!
