Photoshop for Teachers

3 Credits
Photoshop, the world-standard for digital image editing, is the quintessential tool for designing and manipulating images. A must-know for teachers of photography, multimedia, journalism, yearbook and art, Photoshop pushes the boundaries of digital image editing like never before! The richly illustrated course textbook (acquired separately) is accompanied by video tutorials to walk the visual learner through hands-on exercises designed to provide mastery of the tools and core concepts of image manipulation only Photoshop can provide. It is not necessary to own a copy of Photoshop as demonstration versions (CS3 and CS6) are included on the course DVD. Minimum system requirements: Windows XP with SP3 or MacOS 10.6; access to a DVD drive.

Upon registering, the instructor will mail physical course materials at no additional cost, including the TEC 958 course DVD; a DVD drive is necessary to access both the course and textbook DVD. All assignments may be completed without classroom participation. Instructor support is always readily available via email or phone. Additional information found at:

NOTE: Required textbook with author's DVD must be acquired independently (see syllabus for details).

This course is applicable towards the Technology Skills for Educators Certificate.

Just as my mother lived from the dawn of the airplane to watching men walk on the moon, I’ve witnessed the computer shrink in size from a locomotive to a fingernail; from costing more than a house to less than a pair of shoes. In 35 years I’ve worked as a teacher, lecturer, trainer, and technology coordinator, always striving to find the best way to teach. If a pencil does the job, use a pencil. Simple. But the world is not simple, and there are things students need to comprehend that require a depth of knowledge best reached through the power of technology. Never before have I seen so many teachers marvel at how technology has enhanced their classroom - it’s still fun to watch the light bulbs go on!
