Additional GA Position

Our program has an opening for an additional graduate assistant (GA) for the 2014-2015 academic year. The GA will work on campus for 20 hours per week beginning August 18. The pay is $4000 per semester plus tuition costs. 

It is University policy that the GA must work on campus and cannot be employed elsewhere full time. So, unfortunately, our distance students and students with full time jobs are not eligible. 

If you are interested in this position, please send me your resume ASAP. Contracts must be submitted by August 1.  carmen.weaver@memphis.edu

The Instructional Design and Technology (IDT) faculty is pleased to announce the launch of newly designed Certificate in Instructional Design and Technology.  This completely online certificate consists of two tracks, as described below:

Track 1: K-12 Educational Technology

This track is designed for educators who want to integrate the use of computers in the classroom. The focus of these courses is to develop the technology competencies needed for the development, utilization, and integration of instructional computing technology in the classroom.

The required courses are IDT 7061, IDT 7062, IDT 7063, and IDT 7064. To view course titles and descriptions, visit the IDT Course Catalog. You have the option of completing the entire certificate in one summer!

Track Two: Design and Development

We designed this sequence of four courses for instructional designers and developers who work in non-education related settings such as business, government, military, and health care. The four (completely online) required courses are:

IDT 7070: Instructional Design Process I
IDT 7080: Instructional Design Process II
IDT 7090:  Developing Learning Environments I
IDT 7063: Seminar in Instructional Computing
To view course titles and descriptions, visit the IDT Course Catalog.

If you complete either track of the Certificate, you can continue on toward the master’s degree and all your hours count toward the master’s degree.  

This online certificate begins in Summer 2014, and registration is open now. To register please visit http://idt.memphis.edu/

Hello, Students! When courses do not reach a minimum number of enrolled students, they have to be cancelled. We are in the process now of reviewing summer enrollment to determine if any courses will not meet the minimum requirement for enrollment.

Memphis is a great place to be if you are looking for jobs in IDT. There are opportunities in business, healthcare, military, non-profit, and education. We often post jobs to our listserv, but the feedback I am getting is that very few of you apply for them. These are jobs that are ideal for folks with our degrees.

I realize not everyone is located in this area, but for those of you who are, what stops you from applying for these jobs? (You already have a job you want to keep/ You don't see them on our listserv/ You don't feel qualified/ etc.)

Yes, good point. I have to repay the money my job is giving me in tuition assistance if I don't stay for at least two years after completing my degree.

Hello!  I work in the IIS as a Project Coordinator on the CSAL (Center for the Study of Adult Literacy) grant. Our portion of the grant focuses on creating lessons in reading comprehension.

As part of each lesson, we are responsible for creating a 90 second overview of the content that the learners will be exposed to by their human teacher in a classroom session. We would like this overview to include a short video highlighting the important ideas and terms.  I am looking for students that are interested in helping to create this content.

If you are interested in working with our grant, please contact me for details!

This came to my inbox today. Thought I would share.--- Skillfeed provides tutorial videos for programs/skills such as Adobe CS, CSS/HTML, etc. It's not free and I have not used it before, but it might be worth checking out.

On a similar note, does anyone have suggestions for online programs, maybe MOOCs or free courses for maintaining/updating technical knowledge and design skills? Captivate would be nice, or other more generalized programs related to web design, illustration/animation, etc.
