    Ninety percent of academic leaders believe it is ‘likely’ or ‘very likely’ that a majority of all higher education students will take at least one online course in the next five years, according to a recent report tracking online education.

    In response to this rapidly growing online eLearning job market, SWU is offering a graduate-level Micro Credential in Instructional Design. 

    “It’s an exciting time in the field of instructional design, which is expected to see significant job growth between now and 2026,” shared Dr. Tyler Watts, program coordinator. “The Micro Credential in Instructional Design focuses on giving learners the critical skills and practices for this growing industry, whether they wish to apply them immediately or bundle them with other SWU courses for their graduate-level academic goals.”

    Students completing Southern Wesleyan’s Micro Credential in Instructional Design will receive graduate credit for four core courses, a certificate and a digital badge that they can display across social networks. As an added benefit, students pursuing further study in the field can apply all of the graduate course credit to an M.Ed. in Instructional Design and eLearning or as electives in an M.Ed. in Classroom Leadership.

    This graduate online certificate, offered through Southern Wesleyan’s School of Education, also integrates a Christian ethic of care in all instructional design and leadership capacities by promoting digital citizenship, designing accessible content, modeling the safe and effective use of technologies and promoting design for a culturally-responsive society.

    Southern Wesleyan University’s online courses are taught by real-world experts and they also offer the flexibility for the student to earn as they learn.

    Southern Wesleyan is now accepting applications for the Spring 2020 term. To apply, visit this link.
