The Master of Arts in Instructional Technology offered by The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey is designed to bring the best instructional technologies into both public and corporate curricula. With a strong theoretical foundation, the degree enables graduates to use technology as a tool to enhance learning and training. Course delivery takes place in face-to-face, hybrid, and total online modes (refer to Catalog for course-specific options).
The program serves:
1) students who seek or will continue employment in the P-12 schools;
2) students who wish to pursue coordinator or supervisor positions in P-12 schools and districts; and
3) students seeking or holding careers in business, industry, or non-profit organizations.
Instructional technology deals with the improvement of human learning and performance with the aid of technologies. The theoretical foundations of learning, instructional design, and ethical practice support the development and educational use of software applications, multimedia, and web-based technologies. Graduates of the MAIT program can become leaders in the fields of education and training and may qualify for positions in the areas of curriculum design and development, technology coordination, distance education planning, integration of technology in teaching, human performance support, instructional design and training development, and project management.
The core courses focus on important issues related to learning, instruction, research and the impact of technology, and include an overview of a variety of technologies, software applications and Web-based tools. The elective courses are designed to extend the core skills into more specialized environments, and to give students opportunities to enhance their personal interests in the field. Students can develop a customized curriculum from elective courses which is tailored to their needs. Some program courses may satisfy course requirements for a Supervisor’s Endorsement in the state of New Jersey.
An educational cohort is designed to allow a group of students to work together toward their degree or academic objective. This group often starts and ends their program together. For students who live or work a distance from the college, cohort programs are often established at off-campus locations. This enables busy working adults to further their education in spite of their time.
