The Learning Systems Technology (LSTE) program prepares students in the field of instructional design for careers in public schools, community colleges, higher education institutions, business, industry, and medical settings or other facilities. Educational designers analyze problems in all aspects of human learning; they revise, implement, evaluate, and manage solutions to those problems.
Coursework will include the psychology and development of the learner, learning resources development and application, and societal concerns pertaining to instructional technology. Because these careers deal with services to the entire population, all courses in this program make specific efforts to include special needs and exceptional learners.
The program goals are based on the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Standards* for Basic Endorsement in Educational Computing and Technology Literacy and the ISTE Standards for Advanced Programs in Educational Computing and Technology Leadership.
