The 45-credit post-Master’s EDD in Applied Learning Sciences prepares students for careers that require expertise in multiple facets of human learning. The program’s three specific foci, which students are expected to integrate in a culminating applied project, are:
Learning: how people, as individuals, groups, or parts of an organization, learn;
Design: the design, implementation, and revision of learning environments that enhance human learning; and
Assessment: the assessment of learning and the evaluation of individual, social, technological, and design factors that advance or impede learning.
The following courses can be taken under any area because of their cross-cutting nature but will be completed just once.
