How does the Immersion
program differ from the part-time program?
This program replaces the
part-time coursework of EDIT704, EDIT601, EDIT701, and 7-credits of
electives. These two 6-credit project development practicums consist
of extended, situated involvement with several realistic projects
selected from the corporate, academic or government arenas. In these
projects students learn to manage and problem solve complex instructional
issues related to effective instructional design and development much
as they would in the real world. Students are expected to take on
a specific role in a design project team and successfully interact
with a client to design and produce a prototype instructional project
that addresses the needs of the client organization.
What is the time commitment
We estimate that the
actual Immersion instruction time is 6 hours per week. This does
not include additional required coursework and group meetings. Most
students are occupied Monday through Thursday during regular business
hours; however, the actual schedules may vary. We request that you
are available Monday through Thursday 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Is there any funding
Funding support is provided
by the project sponsors. Students receive tuition funding for up
to 24 out of 30 total credits needed in the Immersion Masters Program. There
are no additional stipends provided for books, transportation etc.
Are there any prerequisites
for admittance into the Immersion program?
Yes. Students applying
to the program are required to complete EDIT
526 and EDIT
705 prior to admittance.
