IU Cohorts

Harrisburg University of Science and Technology now offers its 36-credit Learning Technologies Master of Science (LTMS) program off-campus in partnership with Intermediate Units in Central PA. These locations do change. Cohorts are offered at the Lancaster-Lebanon IU in Lancaster.

The LTMS program introduces leading approaches and skills to help you understand and integrate existing and emerging learning technologies into a variety of learning environments. The cohort program provides the opportunity to attend class close to home, collaborate with a network of other local educators, and connect with other learning professionals across Central PA. Off-campus courses are instructor-led and also integrate synchronous and asynchronous learning technologies.
