Lenoir-Rhyne University recently developed a partnership program that offers businesses and organizations a benefit to employees seeking to continue their education. Newton-Conover City Schools has joined LRU in this partnership. As an LR Partner, Newton-Conover City Schools is eligible to offer its employees a discount on graduate coursework at Lenoir-Rhyne University. One graduate program of interest to K-12 educators is the new Online Teaching and Instructional Design program.
The Master of Science in Online Teaching and Instructional Design program prepares educators for quality instruction in blended and online environments. Students who complete the program will learn and apply effective methods for designing and individualizing blended and online instruction for diverse populations of learners. This non-cohort based program is fully online and models promising practices in online instruction. Two tracks are available: a master’s degree track (33 credit hours) and a graduate certificate track (18 credit hours). To learn more about the online teaching and instructional design program, click here or contact program coordinator Dr. Jayme Linton. Applications are currently being accepted for Spring 2015.
