An Analysis of Instructional Technology Graduate Degree Programs in United States Colleges and Universities.
Short, Ronald
A survey was administered to 194 colleges and universities offering instructional technology graduate degree programs to obtain information for a current reference source on their admission and program requirements, degree emphases, enrollment and faculty data, program features, and curricula, for the year 1978-79. All of the institutions responded. In addition to providing a description of existing programs, trends of previous studies--1954-55, 1968-69, 1977-78--were tabulated and compared with current data. It was found that the number of programs has increased from 50 in 1955 to 193 in 1980, and a majority of the programs require the Graduate Record Exam and an undergraduate/graduate grade point average for admissions; 788 full-time and 469 part-time faculty were identified. Recommendations conclude the report. Provided are 23 tables, a 58-item bibliography, and 8 appendices: (1) the questionnaire; (2) graduate programs in instructional technology, identifying contact person, address, and degree type; (3) number of instructional technology programs identified in each state; (4) states comprising each geographic region; (5) school, college or division name; (6) department names; (7) titles of state certification for instructional technology programs; and (8) specialty areas for instructional technology majors.
