M.S. in Instructional Technology
The University of Tennessee’s new online Instructional Technology master's degree will prepare leaders in the field of Instructional Technology at the graduate level. Coursework will prepare students to design, develop, implement, and evaluate online learning environments. These skills will be desirable in a variety of contexts such as education, corporate, government, and nonprofit organizations.
To be successful in this fully online program, students need access to a computer with a high-speed Internet connection, webcam, USB headset with microphone, backup storage device, and software, as required by the course instructors.
IT Online is an online program that takes advantage of both asynchronous and synchronous learning experiences. Therefore, students will be expected to engage in course related activities from the convenience of their home and also have live connections with instructors and participants. This program is specifically focused for individuals interested in the development of online learning environments.
The Instructional Technology program faculty teaching in this program have more than five years of experience teaching online and at least 80% of the program courses are taught by tenure track faculty.
This program consists of 33 credit hours of coursework with a professional portfolio requirement as the capstone experience for the program. Assuming that students take their coursework at a two-courses-per-semester pace, it can be completed in two years. In addition to coursework and the portfolio, every August there is a one-day required face-to-face orientation on the Knoxville campus prior to the start of the semester.
Graduates in this field typically find jobs related to curricular design, technology coordination, distance education, instructional design, and training.
