The Master of Education program in Instructional Technology prepares teachers to direct school improvement toward higher levels of student learning and achievement through the use of instructional technology. It is designed for participants who have a T-4 Teaching Certificate. This program enables experienced teachers to complete the master’s program in six semesters. Candidates will complete 36 hours of specialized course work taught by full- and part-time graduate faculty and experienced technology specialists. The program will be delivered in cohorts offered in a face-to-face or blended format (both on campus and online).
The program will be delivered in six semesters through the use of direct instruction, online collaboration, cohort planning, and individual projects based on relevant and authentic problems experienced in today’s schools. Field-experiences are required throughout the program of study. During the course of study, participants will develop a classroom or school-based instructional technology capstone project to be implemented and completed as part of the program requirements. Candidates will be expected to develop, present, and defend their capstone and professional portfolio providing evidence that they have the knowledge, skills, and dispositions required to master the Professional Standards Commission and International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Technology Coach standards.
