Instructional Technology M.Ed.

In the fully-online Master of Education with a major in Instructional Technology program, we provide you with advanced technology skills and knowledge to professional educators, instructional designers or instructional technologists. This program contains two tracks. The first track can allow teachers who have a level four certificate to advance to level five, while developing technology skills for the classroom. The second track will prepare you for an instructional design career within higher education, corporate, or non-profit.

The core for the majority of the M.Ed. programs at GCSU is school improvement. In this program, educators focus on issues central to school improvement while also learning about best practices in their fields (e.g., early childhood, middle grades, secondary, special education, leadership, library media and educational technology). Based on data gathered in their own schools, educators begin to examine questions such as “What is school improvement? How does change occur? What changes need to be made at my school to best facilitate student learning?” Participants have the opportunity to enroll in classes with other educators from their school, thus creating a cluster of individuals ready to address school improvement as a team. This work is negotiated among educators, their administration and professors. Through this experience, teachers examine their school and create a plan for investigating a problem and developing new practices. Results of school improvement interventions are shared with a wider professional community. These school improvement classes are not required for students following the second track.

Limited graduate assistantships are available for this program. To be admitted, students must have a minimum GPA of 2.75. Students interested in the first track must also hold or be eligible for a clear, renewable, level four Georgia Teacher Certificate. After completion of the program, an S-5 certificate is issued.
