Instructional Technology (M.Ed.)


Note: This program as designed is under revision. We will not be enrolling students beginning in January 2017.

As schools look to update their technology to better engage the 21st century student, more and more are looking for technology experts to help lead the way. Lewis University's M. Ed. Program in Instructional Technology is designed to educate PreK-12 teachers and education technology professionals on how to improve teaching and learning by best integrating technology into the classroom, including:

  • Educational and technology-related research, the psychology of learning, and instructional design principles that guide the use of computers and technology in education
  • Social, ethical, legal and security issues related to the use of technology in education
  • How to select, install, manage and maintain technology hardware and software in the classroom setting
  • Types, uses and selection of software in both classroom and administrative environments
  • Concepts and skills related to implementing, promoting and supporting technology literacy across the curriculum
  • Staff development activities to support professional growth in learning technologies
Technological literacy is an absolute must for a student's long-term success. With a foundation on theoretical content and peer-based collaboration, and a focus on hands-on problem solving, more and more educators are choosing to enhance their technological understanding at Lewis University.

Note: Your Master of Education degree in Curriculum and Instruction will require 30 semester credit hours to complete.

Student Talk

  • Christine Barry
    Secondary Education Teacher, Children of Peace School, Chicago

    "I chose Lewis because of the small class sizes, dedicated faculty and commitment to social justice education. But what I enjoy the most is how I am able to immediately transfer this project-focused education into my classroom."

  • Gena Scarsella
    Technology Instructional Aide, K-6 School

    "Lewis University is an outstanding school and this program's curriculum interested me right away. After all, our classrooms are becoming more consumed with technology. I have been introduced to new ideas and am now prepared to guide our future learners!"


Dr. Seung Kim
Chair, Instructional Technology

"Technology by itself is not effective. Teachers are responsible for making technology successful learning tools. In the Instructional Technology program, we empower our students to be transformative, creative and productive educators and technology leaders who help students with diverse needs to reach their unlimited potential."
