Instructional Technology

Core requirements and coursework in Instructional Technology (IT) prepare students to be leaders in any environment involving learning--K-12 schools, museum education, adult training and development in business and industry, public/non-profit training, higher education, and life-long learning.

Technology, culture, and diversity are virtually inseparable.  As such, diversity plays a large role in projects students design for use inside and outside of classrooms. Faculty and students at Curry contemplate ways technology can be used to extend educational opportunities to all populations.  For example, projects such as the Arts Network of Technological Initiatives celebrate past and present diversity in the immediate community and beyond.  In addition, courses such as Multicultural Education and Advanced Instructional Design encourage students to explore the meaning of diversity.
