Just as technology is transforming the way students learn, it can be one of the driving forces behind the success of many companies, from business and industry to higher education and health care.
The online Training and Performance Improvement master's program (MET-TPI) is focused on providing professionals with the knowledge and experience in using and integrating technologies as well as identifying specific performance improvement (PI) needs. Candidates have an opportunity to apply instructional strategies in the design and development of instructional materials and PI solutions that correspond to jobs in education, health care, instructional design, e-learning, new media, human resources and other business professions.
Designed for business professionals, school administrators, and teachers looking to change careers, the Master of Educational Technology at Lawrence Tech features an optional Training and Performance Improvement track, allowing you to advance your knowledge of technology and business management. Consisting of 30 credit hours the MET/TPI combines real-world business and technology experiences with the solid academic foundation Lawrence Tech is known for. And because the University understands the needs of busy professionals, courses in the MET/TPI are offered completely online and asynchronous, allowing you the flexibility to further your education while balancing personal and professional obligations.
TECHNOLOGY is in our name. We are keeping our coursework current with technology developments and their direct applicaitons for businesses and industry.
Depending on your career goals, a flexible plan of work will be discussed at the time of admission. That means the number of credits per semester and even courses will be considered based on your career goals.
