Master of Education in Instructional Design and Educational Technology

OCU’s commitment to innovation and progress has led to a new master's degree program in education (M.Ed.), focusing on instructional design and educational technology.

With two certificate programs leading toward the master’s degree, this program will help ensure you are well-equipped to make a difference in your community.

The primary goal is to empower educators. With the fast-paced changes in educational trends and the integration of technology in teaching, it's crucial that teachers have the skills needed to remain at the forefront of modern educational practices.

  • Appropriate for all levels of teachers
  • Online synchronous study, with optional in-person learning opportunities
  • Only program of its kind in the state offering stackable certificates that combine for a master's degree
  • Students in OCU's Teacher Development Academy receive six credit hours toward the master's degree in Instructional Design and Educational Technology

The M.Ed. program offers advanced courses that delve deeper into the intricacies of curriculum development and the integration of instructional technology. Those minoring in Education will also benefit from a more diverse elective course pool.

Upon completion of the program, you will be equipped with skills such as designing effective learning experiences, integrating learning theories into instructional practices, leveraging instructional technology, and leading curriculum development initiatives.

All courses are delivered in a hybrid format, allowing for both in-person and remote participation.
