Graduate Certificate in Instructional Technology
Please Note: This program is on a moratorium for 2014-15 and 2015-16 academic year. We are not accepting new students into the program at this time.
The Certificate in Instructional Technology (CIT) is a 16-credit program that provides introductory instruction in supporting teaching, learning, and training with technology. Students focus on evaluating, designing, and utilizing technology-based resources that support education and training across a wide spectrum of learning environments.
Students complete four courses focusing on complementary areas of study, including:
- Evaluation of instructional software across disciplines and grade levels
- Use of the internet in support of teaching and learning
- Topics that define distance education—including the history of the field, research on effectiveness, course design, and management—and that collectively demonstrate its strengths and weaknesses
- Instructional design as a systematic process of analyzing needs, setting objectives, designing evaluations, and selecting technology-based resources that support achieving those objectives.
This certificate stands alone as a coherent introduction to the field firmly grounded in effectively integrating technology-based resources into holistically conceived learning experiences. It also may provide a seamless step into the master’s degree program.
