ME Instructional Technology Online

The Master of Education (M.E.) in Instructional Technology (online format) program focuses upon curricular integration of technology in support of PreK-12 student learning.


Cardinal Stritch’s Instructional Technology program is unique in its approach offering courses focused on excellence in teaching through leveraging current technologies to plan effective instruction. Academic excellence is at the core of all courses with a focus on intellectual, spiritual and social growth. Small class sizes, stimulating course work and robust discussions set Stritch’s degree programs apart from other programs that focus simply on content learning.

Exciting New Opportunities: The Instructional Technology program is now partnering with the Educational Leadership program to provide a core of leadership courses. With this partnership the program will not only deliver the skills you need to plan instruction utilizing current and emerging technologies, but will also provide the skills to lead change efforts at the classroom, school and district levels.

The program combines three areas of study:

  • Curriculum and instruction
  • Technology integration
  • Leadership skills

Students seeking a Masters in Instructional Technology will join the Educational Leadership students for four foundation courses in the principles of leadership. Along with the leadership courses, Instructional Technology candidates will take 17 credits focusing on teaching and learning with technology. The topics of the courses will range from teaching the 21st century learner to Universal Design for Learning and will include a course in virtual instruction in which students will earn their Wisconsin Online Teaching Endorsement.

An added benefit of our program is that you do not need to be enrolled in the Master’s program to enroll in the technology courses.  If you are a practicing teacher looking for coursework to increase your understanding of the role and use of technology in the classroom, you can elect to step in and take one or two of our courses without enrolling in the full program. The flexible online format allows you to participate in high quality professional development from the comfort of your home or wherever you choose to log in.

We invite you to join other educators in this journey to become technology leaders at the forefront of our rapidly changing education system.
