Overview of the theoretical issues/trends in instructional technology and their impact on the effective selection, design, utilization, and evaluation of instructional media.
In ETT 510, you will be exposed to the processes of design, development, utilization, management, and evaluation of learning, with an orientation toward both hard and soft technical skills and equipment involving the use of instructional media for teaching and training. This is not an application course for computers; rather it is one that will explore the effects of instructional technology on teaching and learning. The course content is distributed between two main areas of focus - instructional design principles as well as strategies and methods for integrating technology in learning environments.
