The most innovative and effective educators stretch. They’re relentless. They suspect that there’s always a better way—and they find it. Those who attend graduate programs at ASU’s Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College receive best-in-class preparation that allows them to harness and create knowledge, mobilize people and take action to improve education. These master’s degree and doctoral programs prepare graduates to thrive in their careers and take leadership positions in advancing the world’s most important profession.
The MEd program in educational technology emphasizes the design of learning technology environments, systems, applications, and instructional materials for multiple learning contexts. The program prepares learning design and technology professionals for a variety of settings, including business and industry, and formal and informal educational settings, such as K-12 and higher education, museums, and nonprofit and government organizations.
Through projects that address real-world, authentic problems, students will apply current research and learning theories, along with the use of emerging technologies, to the practice of learning and instructional design. All courses combine a range of resources and technologies to facilitate direct interaction between students, program faculty and classmates. Program graduates will be prepared with the knowledge and skills required to address real-world problems and emerging design challenges through the process of learning design.
