The Department of Learning Technologies' mission is to provide resources, research, and service for education and leadership to the computer and corporate education community and to prepare scholars, educators, and professionals of the highest quality to serve the state, the region, national and international community.
What is ATPI?
The Applied Technology & Performance Improvement (ATPI) program at the University of North Texas is a unique program within the Learning Technologies Department in the College of Information.
ATPI students are typically working professionals who have earned credits from a community college, military or work experiences or are establishing careers in the business, government, or industry. Taking advantage of the job-specific "know how" they already posses, students are offered the "soft skills" required to take their careers to the next level.
Students learn key skills in leadership, training, computing technology, human relations, facilitation, management and organizational development that qualify them to work in a variety of leadership positions. In particular, the ATPI Bachelor of Applied Arts & Sciences (BAAS) program teaches students how to improve human performance in the work place, to solve real-world problems and fully realize the potential of employees that can be applied to individuals, small groups and large organizations.
