An explanation of the ADE program -
Many of the individuals obtaining the IDT degree are practicing P-12 educators who wish to improve the quality of curriculum, instruction, and student learning through appropriate integration of technology into the classroom. Others acquire leadership positions in post-secondary institutions or serve as instructional designers/trainers in business, industry, and the military, charged with training, development, and eLearning programs within their organizations.
With six full-time faculty members, Emporia State's IDT department has the largest and most comprehensive instructional technology program in the state and is the only program in Kansas that grants a Master of Science Degree in Instructional Design and Technology. All master's program courses are completely available online.
