Instructional Design and Technology degree to prepare skilled entry-level workforce
More entry-level positions have started becoming available in the field of instructional design and technology in the past five to seven years, alongside a great need for entry-level personnel to fill them. Industry research conducted by faculty at the University of West Florida has concluded this type of education is mostly offered at the graduate level, with very few higher education institutions responding effectively to the shift in market demand.
With this knowledge, UWF has a new academic degree added to its catalog. Beginning in Fall 2019, the University will offer one of few fully online Bachelor of Science degrees in Instructional Design and Technology, housed in the Department of Instructional Design and Technology within the College of Education and Professional Studies.
The new program will be made possible through the repositioning of UWF’s current specialization program to a bachelor’s program. Graduates will find opportunity for positions in training and development across a variety of sectors, including education, industry, government, military and health care.
