University of Denver Launches Instructional Design and Technology Graduate Program
With the recent shift to online education and virtual learning, there’s a significant increase in demand for skilled instructional designers, according to Inside Higher Ed. In addition, more organizations are adopting learner-centric models of training, leading to projected job growth of nearly 10 percent in the next 10 years, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
To help meet this need, University College at the University of Denver is excited to announce the launch of a new master’s degree program in Instructional Design and Technology with a concentration or graduate certificate in Adult Learning and Inclusive Design. This program was designed to help aspiring instructional design professionals working in corporations, higher education, government, or non-profit organizations learn best practices centered on technology and equity.
Students will learn instructional design strategies and skills to meet the diverse needs of adult learners, from curriculum development to technology integration, planning and analysis to implementation and evaluation. They’ll also build critical competencies in instructional design while cultivating an inclusive mindset and design approach.
“If you love to help people learn and want to create equitable learning experiences, consider pursuing a master’s degree or adding a graduate certificate focused on instructional design and technology,” said Cindy Cragg, academic director for the new graduate program. “Forge innovative paths that best engage adult learners through inclusive design in online spaces.”
Are you interested in a career in the growing field of instructional design and technology? You can complete a master’s degree in as few as 18 months or a graduate certificate in six months entirely online at University College, the college of continuing and professional studies at the University of Denver.
