Learning Experience Design Practicum
This practicum course provides students the opportunity to exhibit their cumulative knowledge, skills, and creativity related to online instructional design and technology. Students will demonstrate their ability to integrate design, pedagogical and technological principles and skills by applying them to a real-world project. Students will serve in a consulting capacity, and work independently or in small groups with a subject matter expert or client on a real project. Alternately, students may create a solution for an existing case study on an e-learning project that requires assessment, design, development, project management, and evaluation. Through development of an actual online instructional design project/product, the practicum allows students to experience the application of the skills and knowledge they have acquired in the prerequisite courses, and will result in the development of a high-quality portfolio project.
