Educational Design - D4008
The Graduate Certificate of Educational Design will equip you with sound learning design principles, which in combination with digital technology, will improve student learning, no matter what the context.
Educational design as a profession was born amid digital disruption, and has continued to evolve at a rapid pace. In a world where education is delivered directly to a learner’s home or office, innovative course design is vitally important, as are the practitioners who push the boundaries of what’s possible.
This is why you’ll have the opportunity to explore theoretical and practical educational design models, finding creative ways to adapt your learning to distinct professional contexts in corporate and higher education settings, as well as the government and not-for-profit sector.
The way you learn is almost as important as what you learn, which is why your course is grounded in practical industry-relevant study – using real-world case study examples and simulations – and led by educational design academics who have developed influential theories accepted around the world.
Your units are built from the ground up to reflect this. You will learn pedagogical design principles that underpin dynamic online educational experiences that are also applicable to non-digital contexts.
Where can the Graduate Certificate of Educational Design take me?
The Graduate Certificate of Educational Design is a versatile qualification that opens up pathways for students with some education experience already, as well as those planning to transition into the industry from other careers.

Graduates can look to exciting careers as an educational designer, learning designer, learning technologist, online learning specialist, instructional designer, learning coach or academic developer. Educational designers find themselves working in universities, TAFEs and other Registered Training Organisations as well as a wide range of corporate, government and not-for-profit organisations.
