Field Study Requirements. In order to complete the field study, the students must design, develop, and produce an instructional design project, using the instructional systems process, from needs analysis to formative evaluation. The instructional product may be in any medium: print, video, multimedia, or computer. The design process used in the development of the product must be described in writing, and any design document, such as performance objectives, storyboards, flowcharts, or scripts, must accompany the written description. The written description must include an introduction, statement of the instructional need or significance of the project, research review, description of the design methodology, and the formative evaluation of the product, and conclusion.
Master's Thesis. Students who wish to conduct a research study use the thesis as a way to demonstrate their research and scholarly interests and abilities. The thesis reports the results of a research study, which has been based on a question of theoretical or applied interest in the field of training or education. The thesis should reflect research questions and inquiry that demonstrate graduate-level capabilities.
Once admitted to the program, students must complete twelve core and six elective units to be awarded the certificate.
