This 15 or 18 credit hour graduate certificate program prepares learning design professionals to create, analyze, use, integrate, implement, assess, evaluate and manage instructional and performance solutions. When students graduate they hold instructional design and technology positions in education (P-12 and higher education), corporate, government, or military organizations. The program develops professionals who are solidly grounded in instructional technology foundations, principles, theories, applications, and current trends and provides opportunities for them to integrate different forms of technology to enhance teaching and learning.

The Learning, Design and Technology graduate certificate has three concentrations

  • School Specialist (18 credit hours) - This concentration is for those who work in the P-12 system and who already hold either an “A” or “G” level teaching license from the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (or from another state). School system personnel who currently hold a valid “A” or “M” level teaching license and are eligible for the Special Endorsement in Computer Education (079 License ) by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction at the end of this graduate certificate. 18 credit hours are required by NCDPI to receive licensure endorsement.

  • Training and Development (15 credit hours) - This concentration is for those who wish to do training and development in corporate, higher education, government and military.

  • Online Learning and Teaching (15 credit hours) - This concentration is for those interested in designing, developing, or managing online learning and teaching.
