Course Description

Colloquium II (MIT 541) is the second of the three Individual Inquiry courses required by the Master of Instructional Technology program. Colloquium II is designed to help MIT students see the trends and issues of the field from the perspective of practitioners and to provide opportunities for students to attend workshops to master the skills needed for instructional technologists. The colloquium thus requires active participation in all course sessions by attending the sessions, and interacting with the presenters and other class members. This course also expects you to attend all the sessions and to write a reflection paper at the end of the semester.
