Master of Distance Education: Distance Education Teaching and Training

The goal of UMUC's Distance Education Teaching and Training program is to educate managers and leaders in the field of distance education, not teachers and trainers in specific content areas. The objective of this specialization is to educate managers to deal with the specific teaching related aspects of modern distance education both in the traditional teaching setting as well as in the corporate training sector. While the specialization focuses on teaching and training, there are close links to technology related aspects (for example, instructional design) as well as specific management related aspects (intellectual property, accreditation, and quality assurance).

Master the demands associated with emerging information and communication technologies. Your advanced skills in this growing field will ensure your leadership position. The UMUC Master of Distance Education– Distance Education Teaching and Training specialization is grounded in the core course – Teaching and Learning in Online Education. Managing online teaching requires some mastery of the instructional design process as well as the integration of the appropriate selection of media.
