Hi everyone. I just finished my undergraduate studies and am currently teaching ESL in AZ, but I'm really interesting in education technology for graduate school. Does anyone have any info about this??? I'd love some advice.
Cardinal Stritch University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin has a great MEd in Intstructional Technology. I did mine there and now they have an online offering for this degree program. http://www.stritch.edu/Content.aspx?id=16440
How did you like the program? Was it rigorous and current? Did you run into any issues with getting credentialed? I'd love your thoughts on the program itself and how well it prepared you for the real world.
I thought it was a great program. Yes, it was rigorous, it was a five semester cohort program and I did feel the material is very current. We did everything technology wise from blogs to wikis and podcasts, and curriculum wise I learned so much! Since graduating more things such as Classroom 2.0 and Twitter have arrived on the scene and I don't think those have been incorporated into the program yet.
I was already in my current position while I participating in the program, so I feel like it just helped me more in my job.
