Indiana University’s Learning Sciences Program has recently launched an online certificate program in Learning Sciences, Media, and Technology (LSMT). Below is a list of the spring courses that will be offered through this program, along with descriptions of each.
I’m a graduate student in the Learning Sciences Program at IU and have taken each of the courses listed below. I’ve found each one of them to be incredibly formative and useful in my own development as an educator and learning theorist, and I strongly recommend all three to anyone who’s interested in a) learning about the intersection of learning, media, and technology; b) stacking up some professional development credits; c) figuring out if they have the chops for graduate school; or b) figuring out if they have an interest in pursuing the learning sciences.
Here’s the official description:
Online Courses Available Spring 2011 from Indiana University
Learning Sciences, Media, and Technology (LSMT)
In-State Tuition Rates for Most Non-Residents
All Courses Taught by IU School of Education Faculty
Three exciting graduate courses uncover current learning theory for the 21st century, and its intersection with media and technology. These are not traditional “distance education” courses. Engaging networked projects will connect you with other students and relevant external resources and communities. You will be able to establish yourself in broader digital professional networks via these courses.
These courses will advance your education and career goals in schools and industry, and will prepare you for advanced degree programs in the Learning Sciences or related fields. At Indiana University, these courses will count towards the 12 credit hour LSMT certificate program (currently in the approval process), the Learning Sciences Master’s and Doctoral Degrees, and many other graduate degree programs.
Want to enroll? For more information on these courses or other opportunities at IU Learning Sciences visit http://www.iu.edu/~lsmt or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Current IU students should email email@example.com to request authorization to register via OneStart. Students not currently enrolled at IU can enroll via the IU distance education website at http://education.indiana.edu/disted.
