This week, the Baker University Board of Trustees will review the program (send positive vibes please). Once the Board of Trustees approves the program, we will then submit a new program application to the Higher Learning Commission (North Central Association), with a subsequent site visit in the future. We are still shooting for a fall 2015 start date. However, January 2016 will probably be a more realistic time to begin our first cohort. This all depends upon the time line for final HLC approval.
I feel like we've been able to put together exactly want I wanted: A unique and exciting degree program blending instructional design and performance improvement/technology. A PDF flyer for the program is available for download below. There may have been a few minor changes since the flyer was printed in the fall, but overall it will give the viewer a good overall idea of what the program entails. Feel free to share with anyone who might benefit from this information.
In my next post, I will share some Baker University IDPT Ed.D.
