Fall (even*): EDCI 321 Learning Theory, Instructional Design and Technology (online)
Explore learning-theory research and its application toward technology-enriched standards-based units of study. Students will study different theories such as constructivism, multiple intelligences, brain-based learning and other research related to how people learn. Participants will learn how technology applications can be used to create learning environments that strengthen 21st century problem-solving skills, and encourage communication, collaboration, and reflection. Using the instructional design strategies explored in this course, participants will develop a standards-based unit of study that strategically integrates technology and meets 21st century skills along with national and state educational technology standards and assessments.
