UHM Graduate Division Policies: The PhD in Learning Design and Technology adheres to all the rules and policies of UHM Graduate Division. It is the responsibility of students to become informed about all of these rules and policies.
Departmental Requirements: Requirements specific to Learning Design and Technology include a mandatory orientation at the start of the first Fall semester, and a laptop computer for use in all LTEC courses as well as Internet connectivity for completing assignments outside of class and participating in hybrid courses. Mobile technology may be used for some course activities but at present, a laptop continues to be needed for some software. No specific software is required for the program but some courses may have you purchase software or apps in lieu of textbooks. Where possible, department policy expects faculty to use open source or freely available software, texts, and other materials.
Professional Participation: Students have opportunities to work on research and grant projects with faculty, and may collaborate on teaching projects. To encourage broader disciplinary affiliations and to have access to needed scholarly resources, all students are required to become members of the Association for Educational Communications and Technology (AECT) – see section on Scholarly Activities below.
