Innovative Learning with Digital Design
Complete Online or Face-to-Face or Both
The purpose of the Master of Education (M.Ed.) in Instructional Technology is to address the learner and develop instructional design using 21st century skills and technology. Students will focus on creativity and innovation; critical thinking and problem solving; and communications and collaboration skills that will prepare them to be competitive in our evolving global society.
By addressing the needs of digital native learners and digital immigrant teachers, whether in a k-12, corporate, or higher educational setting, masters students will learn to assess, problem solve, and design pedagogy for more effective learning.
As classroom instructors across a range of academic disciplines integrate technology into their classrooms, or work place, there is an expanding need to have pedagogy and skills that drive this integration.
During your master's program you will become proficient in using diverse technology applications while addressing the pedagogical needs that will help you confidently implement technology.
This unique program encompasses learning theory, practice and learning new technology applications using a hands-on approach. Please contact the graduate coordinator if you have any questions.
