LT Dept Overview

  1. 1. Departmental Overview
  2. 2. History
  3. 3. Interdisciplinary Roots • Created from historically successful programs Industrial Arts Industrial Arts Vocational Education Occupational & Vocational Education Applied Technology, Training & Development Industrial Technology Engineering Technology Computer Science Computer Education & Cognitive Systems Computer Science Department of Learning Technologies HistoryofDepartment Manual Arts (1909 at UNT)
  4. 4. 4 Our Last 10 Years • During the last 10 years, the proposed unit’s growth exceeded all existing COE departments with an average annual SCH increase of 7.90%. • During the last 10 years, the BAAS undergraduate program exceeded the College of Education average with an average annual SCH increase of 8.78% (8.78% vs 2.76%).

  5. 5. Planned Effectiveness
  6. 6. 6 Effectiveness • Due to the combination of these to successful programs, the following steps are being take to increase efficiency: – Degree Programs • Deletion of two graduate degree (M.Ed., Ed.D.) • 40% increased effectiveness. – Undergraduate Program • Only UNT online undergraduate program. • Five large sections will be developed within the next five years. UniversityCore Occupational Specialization Performance Technology Computing Technology Learning Technology BAAS Degree
  7. 7. 7 Effectiveness (cont.) • Masters Program – Online foundation and research core – 40% increased effectiveness • Doctoral Program – Online foundation and research core – 20% increased effectiveness FoundationCourses ResearchCore Performance Technology Computing Technology Learning Technology Graduate Degrees
  8. 8. Planning for Student/Faculty Success
  9. 9. 9 Faculty/Student Success Research constructs used to guide degree programs, faculty research and student-centered research. White papers describing research constructs have been created in a partnership between students and LT faculty. Learning Technologies Performance Technologies Computing Technologies
  10. 10. 10 White Papers • Three unit “white papers” have been developed in a cooperative effort between current students and faculty. – Learning Technologies – Computing Technologies – Performance Technologies • These white papers will provide guidance to future students as they choose their broad research constructs and specific areas of research interest.
  11. 11. 11 Research Constructs • Provides inherent collaboration opportunities while maintaining faculty independence. • Overlapping faculty research in three primary constructs: – Learning Technologies – Computing Technologies – Performance Technologies • Provides students an opportunity to study a research construct with multiple faculty with similar research interest. • Provides coherence in departmental activities
  12. 12. 12 Definitions Technology Can be defined as the utilization of theory, systems, processes, and tools that advance society by improving skill sets, promoting global and local connectivity, and increasing the productivity and knowledge of a society (Wircenski, Allen 1998). Learning technology Includes the use of a broad range of communication, information, and related technologies to support learning and teaching (Association of Learning Technology, 2006). The construct encompasses aspects of learning ranging from learning styles and teach techniques to curriculum design, artificial intelligence, computer-assisted instruction, and human-computer interaction.
  13. 13. 13 Definitions Performance Technology Is a “systematic process/methodology of linking business, educational, and governmental goals and strategies with workforce responsibilities for achieving goals” (Addison, 2003, p.14; Van Tiem, Moseley & Dessinger, 2003). Computing Technology Refers to the process of utilizing tools, devices, and implements to support learning and performance to increase interaction, communication, and learning outcomes.
