About This Course. . .

MIT 510 is the planning and development of large scale training programs through application of Instructional Systems Design (ISD) methodology. The course addresses issues associated with overall training programs rather than with instructional units or lesson. The course will be oriented toward design and implementation of total training systems. The course will not focus on the design and development of single instructional units or lessons. While there is a considerable theoretical basis and emphasis that underlies ISD, this course will have practical focus.

As a required course in the MIT Masters program at UNCW, MIT 510 is second course of series of fundamental building blocks necessary for a well-rounded background in both the theoretical and practical elements of ISD. Students seeking a masters degree in ISD should be cognizant of the fact that the subject matter and project embodied in this course require prerequisite knowledge and skills acquired in MIT 500. In addition, the materials covered in this course provide basic theoretical and practical knowledge for any systems approach to educational planning. It is essential that students expend the time and energy necessary to meet the stated objectives if they want to adequately meet future prerequisites in this program.
