    • MAIT Program deals with
      The improvement of teaching, learning and performance through the application of learning theory and technology.
    • MAIT program focuses on
      Designing instruction from the perspective of the learner rather than from the perspective of the content (the traditional education and training approach).
      (Morrison, Ross, & Kemp, 2003)
    • MAIT Program serves
      Educators, administrators,
      and related personnel in K-12 schools and higher
      education, as well as those involved in instructional
      design, development, and training in government and
      in the corporate sector.

    • What is the Cohort Program?
      All classes are offered at a school site or via distance education.
      The same group of students (cohort) proceeds through the program together.
      The curriculum is customized to the needs of the cohort group.
    • Benefits of MAIT Cohort
      Faculty/staff convenience
      Networking synergy among colleagues
      Customized Professional Development

      Content & Technology integration
      Course/training design and assessment
      Use of local community facilities
      Mobilization of local human resources

      Three track courses selected by the cohort group
      Two elective courses selected by the cohort group
      Possible to provide a new elective course

    • For a new MAIT Cohort

    • Testimonials of Graduates
      When asked by colleagues
      about the MAIT program,
      I responded "I learned more
      about technology than I could
      possibly ever use in the
      classroom in my teaching
      career." Now, three years later,
      I am applying much of
      what I learned in the MAIT

    • Testimonials of Graduates
      I entered the MAIT program as a classroom Language Arts teacher with more than thirty years experience and was soon delighted with my choice. I found the classes stimulating, my instructors talented and accessible, and my classmates enthusiastic and bright. What I’ve learned in the MAIT program has enabled me successfully infuse technology into my curriculum and become a valuable resource for my peers.
