Learner-centered Instructional Design Certificate
CU Denver’s Learner-centered Instructional Design certificate focuses on human centered design, learning engagement and motivation, and learning frameworks. You’ll explore distinct themes of design-thinking, learning aesthetics, universal design, and system usability.
Through these courses you will participate in a learning community that stresses inclusive values, social learning, open sharing, and knowledge construction. You will learn about emerging trends and issues and relevant research and best practices, use a variety of digital media platforms and development tools, and design a number of learning products and resources worthy of showcasing in a professional portfolio. The course assignments focus on solving professional problems of practice in your own school and organizational settings.
We recommend you complete the one required course (INTE 5100) before you take all of the other “application” courses. If you begin the program in Fall or Spring, please enroll in INTE 5100 as your first course in the certificate. If you begin the program in Summer, please contact your Faculty Advisor to create a plan of action for your certificate program completion (INTE 5100 isn’t typically offered in summer.) If you have paired the Learner-Centered Instructional Design Certificate with the Online Teaching & Learning (OLT) Certificate, follow the sequence for OLT first.
