The MAT program provides skills that are in increasingly high demand, ideal for those who want to work with schools, colleges, and businesses to effectively integrate technology into their learning environment. You will learn the fundamentals of instructional design and learning theory and then apply their knowledge to technology. Courses cover a range of engaging topics, including instructional systems design, learning theory, online learning, learning management systems, virtual learning environments, and educational technology evaluation.
In this 30-credit degree, which can be completed in a year, you will work with a cohort of diverse and engaged professionals, including those in K-12 education, higher education, corporate training, nonprofits, and government organizations. Together, you will explore new learning technologies and ageless techniques to apply to each of your organizations, whether that’s providing technology support to K-12 teachers or university faculty, or launching web-based training for a corporation or government agency. Together with this new network of professional peers (and after graduation MAT alumni in key positions in the area), you will be empowered to bring effective teaching with technology to your current position, or prepare for a new one.
