The Instructional Design, Development and Evaluation Department (IDD&E) at Syracuse University 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.  


Key facts

Syracuse University 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, Instructional Design, Development and Evaluation 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. 

Graduate Student Work Space

Limited works spaces in the IDD&E Department are available for use in pre-scheduled, four-hour increments. Students who hold IDD&E assistantships, fellowships, or are otherwise employed/interning with the department are given priority for these spaces. Students outside of the department interested in using the space can contact Rebecca Pettit.
