The Instructional Design, Development and Evaluation Department (IDD&E) offers a variety of programs to help students develop the competencies required to identify and evaluate learning and performance problems and to design, develop, and implement appropriate instructional solutions to these problems. Students develop competencies to conduct instructional analysis, make appropriate design decision, develop instructional materials, implement and evaluate instructional programs, and assess learning. The curriculum includes courses that blend soft technologies (thinking models and theories, strategic planning, IDD&E processes, interpersonal communications, and software) and hard technologies. Through practical projects, students develop competencies to design, create, implement, and evaluate non-technology and technology-supported instructional solutions for a variety of educational and professional settings. Certificates are offered in educational technology (15 credits), professional practice in educational technology (24 credits), and instructional design fundamentals (12 credits); a master’s of science degree is offered in Instructional Technology for NYS K-12 permanent certification; and M.S., C.A.S., and Ph.D. degrees in Instructional Design, Development and Evaluation, are offered.

Certificate Requirements

The 60-credit C.A.S. builds upon the master’s degree, preparing students for higher-level positions in education, industry, or academia. People seeking career advancement in positions such as Instructional and Curriculum Coordinator, Project and Performance Technology Manager, Design and Development Specialist, E-learning Specialist, Evaluation and Assessment Specialist, and Technology Coordinator may wish to pursue this program.
