Certificate in Instructional Technology, Master of Arts in Teaching with Technology
A Master of Arts in Teaching with Technology (MAT) is for those who want to work with schools, colleges and businesses to effectively integrate technology into their learning environment. Students learn the fundamentals of instructional design and learning theory and then apply their knowledge to technology. Courses cover educational uses of the web, e-learning, distance learning, blogs, wikis, learning management systems, virtual learning environments and educational technology evaluation.
The MAT program prepares professionals to create, evaluate, integrate and support instructional technology in K–12 and higher education organizations.
The schedule is geared toward working adults. In-person classes meet every other weekend for three hours. Between classes, faculty and students continue their study in a vibrant online learning environment.
Theory, management, and project-based learning are stressed over specific software skills.
Every student completes a Capstone Project as a final thesis. Capstones challenge students to solve a real-world problem in an area in which they want to work professionally.
