The Johns Hopkins University (JHU) School of Education and the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) are offering an 18-credit online graduate certificate in School Administration and Supervision focusing on instructional technology to national and international audiences. This initiative is designed to prepare school-district employed certified teachers and other certified personnel aspiring to become 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.
Beginning with the Spring 2014 cohort, this program will feature five online courses offered in eight-week segments, combined with an internship course which is offered in three one-credit sections. Participants will earn the 18-credit certificate from Johns Hopkins University and will be 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.

"The JHU Administration and Supervision ISTE program challenged and inspired me in ways I could not have imagined! It provided a solid theoretical background in effective leadership, curriculum, and supervision, and was coupled with a tremendous internship opportunity that allowed me to put that theory into practice. Guided by thoughtful, professional, and caring instructors, as well as a strong partnership with ISTE that allowed many opportunities to explore and go deeper with my own unique interests, I have emerged from this program with strong educational leadership and technology skills, as well as a new position as a school administrator. I am honored to have been a part of this unique program and to call myself a graduate of the JHU A&S/ISTE certificate program."
