Instructional Design and Technology
Welcome to the Instructional Design & Technology program web site. Founded as a collaborative effort of the College of Education and Human Development, Department of Psychology, and John D. Odegard School of Aerospace Sciences, the IDT program has trained instructional designers to work in schools as curriculum developers and technology facilitators, and to work in corporate settings as trainers and developers of print-, computer-, and web-based instruction.
The Instructional Design & Technology program was modified in 2005 to reflect the needs of modern schools and the training workplace, adding more instructional design, human-performance technology, and technology-based instruction course options. This new curriculum is based on the AECT/NCATE curriculum standards for instructional design programs, and is competetive with the best graduate programs in IDT.
What makes the IDT program at UND stand out, however, is its interdisciplinary nature, access to cutting edge simulation and video production resources, and the personal, one-to-one learning, research, and development experiences our students enjoy.
