IT Graduate Minor

Master students at the staircase in the CISE

Overview

The mission of the minor in instructional technology is to provide students with a theoretical base and practical hands-on experience in the design, development, implementation, utilization, management, and evaluation of leading edge instructional technologies. The objectives of the minor are to:

  1. increase knowledge and application of instructional technology to improve the teaching/learning process;
  2. improve curriculum development and delivery to meet individual learner needs and to increase learner achievement;
  3. improve the efficiency and productivity of teachers, trainers, and administrators; and
  4. provide access to individualized instruction through computer-based technology, video, and other technology-based instruction.

Minor Advisor

Graduate students declaring an Instructional Technology Minor must consult with the advisor about the minor program planning. If students take more than one IT course before consulting with IT faculty, that second course may not count toward their minor pending upon his approval. In addition, IT faculty are required to sign-off on the Application for Degree concerning the minor area. Therefore, if IT minors have never consulted with IT faculty prior to graduation, their IT courses may not count toward fulfilling minor requirements.
