Instructional Systems Technology

We improve human learning and performance in diverse contexts

Take an active role in designing instructional materials and strategies that improve the way people acquire, process, and share information.

In this program, you’ll work with leading experts in the field to observe and analyze learning environments, evaluate the effectiveness of different strategies for learning, and research which technologies—analog, digital, and conceptual—can make those environments and strategies more powerful.

A degree in Instructional Systems Technology has a reach beyond educational settings: our alumni work for corporations, government, military, and nonprofit organizations.

As a graduate, you’ll be prepared to solve instructional problems and tackle human performance issues, from training factory workers to use new equipment to developing a change management plan for new practices in a global company.
