This 15-credit certificate program prepares educators and instructional design professionals who want to advance their skills in the design, development, and implementation of technology-based learning experiences. Students choose LDT 415A or LDT 415B to match the professional context in which they want to apply the skills learned in the program. The remaining twelve credits of the program can be chosen to best meet the individual interests, needs, and goals of the learner. In these courses, the intended professional context is addressed by the choice of projects.
