Update: Baker University Online Ed.D. in Instructional Design and Performance Technology

Things are moving along with our new program proposal for an online Ed.D. in Instructional Design and Performance Technology (IDPT). Once the standards and course of study were identified, I plunged into writing syllabi for each of the courses (that's a lot of syllabi writing). We then began obtaining necessary approvals through the Baker University curricular change/approval process within the graduate education department and the graduate school of education. Last week, the University  Academic Council unanimously approved the program and syllabi.

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. course descriptions.
