In the Master of Education in Learning Design & Technology program educators learn to optimize the intersection among content, pedagogy, and technology, individually and collectively redefining what constitutes teaching in the 22nd century. Instruction becomes student-centered and customized. Students become co-creators of knowledge, joining with teachers in joint inquiry. A disposition for learning is cultivated; learners are encouraged to awaken and enliven their innate sense of imagination, curiosity, self-awareness, passion, courage, adaptability, and perseverance.
The program prepares educators to connect students to digitally-mediated modes of learning, thinking, and knowing. Technology is used to redefine instruction and create new learning tasks, moving beyond technology as a direct substitution tool. Instructional technology becomes a mind tool to enable learning that could not happen in any other way.
Pairs of courses focus on transformative learning areas related to research, the teacher’s new role, instruction through technology, collaboration, and change.
