Instructional Design and Delivery

Undergraduate Certificate

The undergraduate certificate in Instructional Design and Delivery focuses on how to develop curriculum and assessment for adult learners within online, face-to-face, and hybrid learning environments. In this online program, you will study leading theories and concepts of curriculum design, while learning to organize effective instruction that challenges and involves adult learners in ways that meet their diverse needs. Courses address topics such as pedagogy versus andragogy; organizing and managing adult learner instruction; creating courses, syllabi, objectives, and engaging activities; basics of curriculum and program evaluation; inclusiveness and accommodations; and assessment.

This concentrated, 6-course program is intended for undergraduate students who wish to further their knowledge in instructional design and teaching adult learners in academic settings and corporate/military training contexts without committing to a degree program.

Note: This program is not designed to prepare educators for work in K-12 public school settings and is not a degree program that would lead to state-level teaching certification.
