Educational technology graduate programs
Save to My Collections
The field of educational (instructional) technology is relatively young, generally applied, and interdisciplinary. Moreover it serves multiple sectors that require specific skill sets, knowledge bases, and abilities. The authors contend that academic preparation and professional work requirements are unclear (Larson, 2005; McNeil, 2006; Rowley, 2007). This descriptive study examines the nature of instructional technology graduate programs in the United States as a starting point to clarify how graduates are prepared for professional work. Findings suggest that programs serve multiple sectors, overall do not adhere to a common set of standards, have limited common core course requirements, and tend to include applied requirements as demonstration of competency.
