Athens State Offering Technical Instructional Design Option

May 17, 2013

ATHENS, Ala. – At the beginning of the 2012/2013 academic year, Athens State University added an option to the Career and Technical Education major in the College of Education that prepares students to work as instructional designers and trainers. The Option in Technical Education: Instructional Design addresses a need for bachelor-degreed instructional designers in schools, community colleges, business and industry.

“The individuals looking for these types of jobs will not require a Class B teaching certification,” states Christopher Inman, Assistant Professor of Instructional Technology. “They will, however, require knowledge of how students learn as well as how technology can be utilized to facilitate learning. The advent of widely available technological possibilities in the teaching cycle has caused a void in the number of skilled instructional designers who understand curriculum, instructional technique and how to design online and technology-based coursework at all levels. This option is in an answer to this need.”

Instructional Designers engage students or employees in the learning process, encourage their participation, and address specific learning needs. The program at Athens State will advance the student’s knowledge of instructional design and learning theories and provide practical application experience in designing, delivering, and evaluating training. Further career options in instructional design include: training consultant, technologist trainer, corporate trainer, and program designer. For more information, visit www.athens.edu/college_edu
