  • James H. Strain Victoria College
  • Alistair Inglis Victoria University of Technology


Following a major revision of course content, the former Graduate Diploma in Educational Technology conducted at Victoria College was re-accredited in December 1989 as a Graduate Diploma in Instructional Design and Technology. This paper will examine the significance of the course's name change and explore the distinctions identified between the role profile of an instructional designer and an educational technologist. The authors will outline some of the fundamental changes necessary in providing a graduate diploma program for instructional designers as compared to educational technologists.
