<strong>Who Should Apply?</strong><br />
This certificate targets teaching professionals who want to hone their instructional design, facilitation, consultation, or project management skills. Graduates of this program take the lead in conceptualizing and producing a wide variety of learning interventions – from self-paced "overview" tutorials to complex electronic performance systems to podcasts and vodcasts. A hallmark of the program is its flexibility; the choice of different elective strands allows participants to focus, for example, on the design of (intrinsically-motivating) educational games and simulations; ways to strategically influence "informal" learning; and development of web sites and other products that embrace the principles of universal design. The program prepares participants for high-level roles in the learning enterprise, no matter what the setting in which they happen to work (K-12, higher education, business, nonprofit, military, government).
<strong>Certificate Requirements</strong><br />
To be admitted to the Advanced Certificate in Instructional Design program, candidates must meet the departmental admission requirements and earn a satisfactory score on the GRE (950 combined score on the verbal and quantitative portions). They will complete 18 units of coursework: nine required units (<em>EDTEC 540, 541, and 544</em>) and nine units of elective credit (from any <em>EDTEC 600-</em> and <em>700-</em>level courses offered).<br /><br />
