LTMS 540: The Instructional Designer as Entrepreneur (3 semester hours)
The instructional design profession is evolving. Instructional designers frequently find themselves working as independent consultants, with the need to keep finding new work. They move from gig to gig, contract to contract. This requires a new outlook and a new set of skills. This course covers what you will need to survive this new world – from building a solid network to understanding how to read and respond to a request for proposal.

The Learning Technologies and Media Systems (LTMS) program explores the intersection of learning and technology, and provides our students with hands on experiences that show how technology is changing learning. Students study the art and science of instructional design and develop practical skills to analyze performance, create new solutions and manage the technology of instruction. Our students are employed in industry and in education, and our program strives to develop new knowledge in both areas. You can explore the many facets of the program from this central location.
