Instructional Technology at SIUE
The Master of Science in Education (MSEd) with a major in instruction technology from SIUE's School of Education, Health and Human Behavior prepares students for a variety of instructional development and technology-related positions in education, business and industry. Courses are 100 percent online and will help you apply cutting-edge media and techniques within the field.
In the Digital Age, you can enhance your professional power by honing your skill in helping others learn, unlearn and re-learn. Instructional technology (IT) is an interdisciplinary field that can sharpen your abilities to critically analyze the performance problems of employees or students. Once analyzed, instructional technologists envision flexible solutions to those problems, design creative strategies for bringing their visions to life, produce a variety of multimedia innovations, and evaluate how well their own solutions, strategies and innovations added value to the organization for which they work.
At SIUE, the IT program is a flexible program offered entirely online through the Department of Educational Leadership. During the fall and spring semester, courses are 16 weeks in duration; during the summer, abbreviated-term courses are common.

Professional Development Sequences
The instructional technology program offers professional development sequences, post-baccalaureate certificates and three master’s degree emphases. You can apply the credits from a professional development sequence toward select certificates and the master’s degree. For example, each certificate is the combination of two professional development sequences. Thus, if you earn a certificate, you actually will be earning three SIUE credentials: two professional development sequences and the certificate.
Each curriculum is tailored for instructional technologists in different settings. Combine multiple credentials to pursue your professional goals.
