Program Description


The Graduate Certificate in Instructional Design for Simulations prepares educators, instructional designers, and human resource and training specialists in corporate, industry and educational settings to work with engineers, graphic artists, computer programmers and game developers to design training and instructional systems.

The Graduate Certificate in Instructional Design for Simulations provides an interdisciplinary approach to prepare educators, instructional designers, and human resource and training specialists in corporate, industry and educational settings to work with engineers, graphic artists, computer programmers and game developers to design training and instructional systems, focusing on the pedagogical aspects of stand-alone and PC-based desktop training and educational simulations and games.
