PRLog - Jan. 25, 2010 - HARRISBURG, Pa. -- Harrisburg University of Science and Technology has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Chester County Intermediate Unit  (CCIU) for a partnership that will market and deliver the University’s Learning Technologies Master of Science (LTMS) program to personnel from the IU and the school districts which it serves.

"The Chester County Intermediate Unit prides itself on being an innovative leader in educational staff development and training," said Dr. Joseph O'Brien, CCIU executive director.  "As such, we are proud to partner with Harrisburg University to lead the way in bringing the University's one-of-a-kind Master of Science in Learning Technologies to educators in Chester County and surrounding counties. By partnering with universities of the high-caliber of Harrisburg University of Science and Technology, we ensure that our students continue to receive a world-class education."

A key element of the Learning Technologies master’s degree is the use of technology to integrate and develop new ways of learning and ways to assess learning, as well as explore new approaches to work with an emphasis on collaboration.  The degree is a blend of theory and practice which develops skills that can be applied to complex education and training issues.

The CCIU and HU partnership program includes the same courses and qualified, instructional staff as the on-campus program in Harrisburg. Off-site courses are instructor led and/or integrate learning technologies to blend synchronously with an on-campus section.

One of 29 intermediate units across Pennsylvania, the Chester County Intermediate Unit provides services to the 12 school districts in Chester County. This includes services to nearly 85,000 public and non-public school students and over 6,000 educators. CCIU's major services include: special education and compensatory education programs; career, technical and customized education; mentor training and staff development; technology initiatives; consortia for school business operations; and curriculum services.

Harrisburg University Learning Technologies Master of Science (LTMS) is a 36-semester credit hour program which provides educators and trainers with the leading edge approaches and skills to help them understand and integrate existing and emerging learning technologies into a variety of learning environments.

“Technology is having an impact on teaching and learning at all levels of education.  As technologies have advanced and access increased there is a demand for individuals that can successfully integrate technology into learning activities and mentor other to do so as well,” says Andy Petroski, Director of Learning Technologies and Assistant Professor of Learning Technologies at Harrisburg University.  “Harrisburg University is supporting the effort to meet the needs of today’s learning environments through the Learning Technologies Master of Science program.  Educators enrolled in the LTMS program learn how to evaluate, select, design, develop, and assess a variety of learning solutions that take advantage of technology to improve learning outcomes.”
