Graduate Certificate in Instructional Design

What?: The University of Wisconsin – Stout Graduate Certificate in Instructional Design helps students become leaders in effective and innovative uses of current and emerging technologies to design instruction. Instructional Design (ID) is the systematic approach to determining the need for instruction, designing and developing objectives, content, and assessments around that need, and evaluating the effectiveness of your design in relationship to instruction.

The UW Stout program models best practices in the field by:

  • teaching learners how to design effective instruction for any delivery method
  • aligning appropriate instructional activities and assessments
  • teaching computer-based training and matching technology tools to instructional problems
  • providing students the skills for managing the complete instructional design process
