The 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.
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.
