Program overview

The Graduate Diploma in Instructional Technology prepares you for careers in developing instructional and informational materials, and in assisting with technology projects in training and communication departments, higher education institutions, schools, and nonprofits. In the program, you explore how to design and develop instructional and informational materials as well as broader campaigns that link these together to improve the performance of individuals and organizations. Preparation in learning theories ensures that instructional and communication strategies used address human learning and cognition. Courses in using production tools, communication skills, consulting, designing games, and administration prepare you for real-world challenges. An optional Field Experience (internship) with one of our wide network of corporate, government, and community partners guides you in applying the skills learned through the program and launching the next phase of your career.
