Goals and Focus of the Program
The Master of Arts in Instructional Technology program focuses on the ability of the candidate to understand the networked learner (student and teacher) in a 21st century classroom/setting and to align instruction with the needs of each student using ISTE, Common Core, and content standards. The focus of the program is to develop candidates’ capacities to use social media as a platform to engage learners and teachers in connecting authentically to a network of learners/teachers and classrooms/settings globally. Courses teach candidates how to use technologies authentically and purposefully as they develop performance-based learning and assessment experiences which meet the learning needs of each student. Development of units, projects and lessons are based on the philosophy of backward-design, Universal Design, and is standards based. Each course develops candidates’ abilities to use technology to meet the needs of all students including second language learners and special needs students.
The Master of Arts in Instructional Technology program follows a cohort model in which face-to-face sessions take place from 4:45 PM – 8:45 PM on the same night of the week at a central location. Eight-week courses include a combination of face-to-face as well as online sessions, with the possibility of courses being delivered fully online. The duration of the program is approximately two years.
Candidates in the Master of Arts in Instructional Technology program will hold at least a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited institution with a minimum GPA of 2.5, a current teaching certificate, one year of full time, contracted, teaching experience and access to a classroom throughout the program to fulfill field study requirements.
