1 MAITEL INSTRUCTIONAL TECHNOLOGY & E-LEARNING MASTER OF ARTS & E-LEARNING INSTRUCTIONAL TECHNOLOGY
2 WHY EARN AN MAITEL? WHY EARN AN Remaining current in the world of technology has become more and more difficult not only for educators, but for business and industry as well. The Master of Arts Instructional Technology & E-Learning program enables graduates to meet the needs of schools, as well as business and industry, health and human services, government, and the military. The skills acquired through this degree enables individuals to use technology as a tool to enhance learning and training, opening up a variety of career options. The explosion of distance education programs in the United States and around the world has increased the career opportunities for educators, trainers, and instructional design professionals exponentially. With new demands for cost cutting and a high-speed global network in place, using technology in the class and at work has become so common that learning organizations and corporations alike are aggressively pursuing e-learning professionals. It is clear that e-learning is here to stay. Experts are sought after to fill positions in education, business, government, and non-profit organizations. Instructional technologists and e-learning experts may hold positions in any of the following areas: Education Curriculum design and development Instructional design development Classroom computer teaching Instructional software development Technology coordination E-learning Instructor Business/Industry/Health/Military Technology consulting Multimedia development Project management Training and development Quality Assurance Manager E-learning Consultant Software Developer The MAITEL program is taught 100% online! Don t take our word for it... read what Jenifer Almassy has to say about her experience in the MAITEL program at SVSU.
3 MEET Jenifer Almassy When a teaching opportunity brought Jenifer Almassy to mid-eastern Michigan in late 1990s, the Battle Creek/Kalamazoo area native was happy. But when she faced being laid off two years later, she had her first inkling of wanting to be more marketable and thought that an advanced degree in educational technology was the best approach. Jenifer was hired by Reese High School in 2000 as a computer and English teacher. In addition to her classroom role, she wore other hats, including work as a professional development coordinator and serving on technology committees. The more she did, the more she knew I wanted more in technology. I was ready to go back to school, ready to develop professionally, and ready for the next challenge. I thought technology director was it. So in 2007, Jenifer enrolled in SVSU s Master of Arts Instructional Technology & E-Learning (MAITEL) program. Though she looked at several regional universities, she liked SVSU s many on-line classes, and the people. She had participated in the Saginaw Valley Regional Summer Institute held on the SVSU campus and was impressed by the professionalism of the SVSU staff, the class delivery and the flawlessness of the way the program was managed. It suggested to Jenifer that she would have a similarly impressive experience at SVSU as a graduate student and she did. Jenifer had set out to get the MAITEL degree so that she could be a tech director. Yet when she completed her degree in 2008, such jobs were scarce. Yet rather than bemoan the fact that her title didn t change, Jenifer says she is still thrilled with her education and its practical application that she uses in her role as English and computer teacher. There is value and benefit regardless of the teaching role. If a teacher is stagnant or wants a different way to express him/herself or reach students, then technology is the tool to do that. Each class I took in the MAITEL program has allowed me to put something new into my classes. Nothing I learned was busy work; it all has had applicability.
4 INSTRUCTIONAL TECHN The Master of Arts Instructional Technology & E-Learning (MAITEL) degree offers the following two cognates of study... INSTRUCTIONAL TECHNOLOGY COGNATE The Instructional Technology cognate is available for classroom teachers interested in integrating technology into their curriculum, school administrators or teachers charged with decision-making and administration of technology. It is also perfect for business or government personnel involved in the development and administration of technology based training. E-LEARNING COGNATE The E-Learning cognate is designed for organizational leaders who are interested in enhancing their professional practice through the study and application of online knowledge related to instruction and learning via distance education technologies. Topics include understanding knowledge management and the reuse of knowledge, applying universal design, developing techniques for distance education, and developing appropriate materials for online learning environments. ASSOCIATED ENDORSEMENT The Educational Technology (NP) endorsement consists of 21 credits and prepares teachers to use technology resources for classroom instruction.
