About

The Master of Education in Learning Systems Technology (LSTE) program’s mission is to prepare instructional designers and learning scientists for careers in public schools, community colleges, higher education institutions, business, industry, government, military, and medical settings or facilities.

Overview

Specifically, the program enables instructional designers to act in teaching and administrative roles in order to analyze problems and apply solutions for learning, including planning, preparation, implementation, evaluation, and management. Aspects of the program include the psychology and development of diverse learners, learning resources development and application, and societal concerns pertaining to instructional technology.

The program includes three major areas in instructional technology:

  • Instructional program development: consideration of the broad problem of developing a complete system of instruction, a total application of technology, and mediated instruction to facilitate learning;
  • Educational technology product development: the practice of creating packages of mediated instruction and the translation of specific instructional objectives into concrete items that facilitate learning; and
  • Educational technology management: an investigation of support services for both instructor and learner; considers principally a “responsive” service; includes aspects of location, selection, acquisition, organization, storage, retrieval, distribution, and maintenance of both materials and devices.
