“I have wanted to return to school for the Educational Technology Leadership program at Nicholls since I completed my student teaching seven years ago. The learning in the EDTL program has really boosted my confidence in coaching my colleagues in utilizing digital tools while also helping me to prepare my students for the 21st century. I appreciate that the program focuses less on tools and more on learning how to teach and learn with technology as the digital landscape continues to evolve.” – Katelyn Reulet ‘21
