The Graduate Diploma in Learning and Technology is a 18-credit, six course program designed to build the knowledge and practical skills of professionals working in the field of technology-mediated education. It meets the growing need for management-level individuals who have the knowledge and skills to assume leadership roles in program design, development, and evaluation, as well as the need for online facilitators who can effectively integrate educational technologies into their teaching and learning environments.

This program was designed to be taken on its own, but students who successfully complete the program may have their credits applied to the Master of Arts in Learning and Technology degree.

The Graduate Diploma in Learning and Technology is delivered as a blended program (incorporating online learning with an on-campus residency), as well as a purely online model.

Who It’s For

Instructors who work in or aspire to work in technology-mediated learning environments including K-12 education systems, post-secondary institutions, government departments, the corporate sector, and not-for-profit agencies. This program is for those interested in integrating technology more effectively into the classroom; individuals responsible for professional development within corporations, government and the public sector; and senior decision-makers responsible for online learning activities.

Applications are assessed, based on an integrated and consolidated examination of academic credentials, work experience and personal experience. Experience in a technology-mediated learning environment is an asset.

Applicants who do not have the formal academic education to qualify for admission may be assessed on the basis of both their formal education and their informal learning, in accordance with the Flexible Admission Policy.

Outcomes

Graduates will have the skills to assume leadership roles in program design, development, implementation, and evaluation of technology-mediated learning initiatives.

Graduates will be able to:
-Develop proposals for instructional strategies
-Analyze, design, develop, implement, and evaluate instructional design
-Recommend appropriate learning strategies
-Plan and coordinate projects to a successful conclusion
-Evaluate current educational technology research
-Advance their careers as leaders in technology-mediated learning environments

Graduates will have:
-Expanded knowledge of educational theory
-Developed practical skills in graphic design, project management and instructional design
-Increased understanding of student characteristics and needs
-Enhanced critical thinking and creative problem-solving skills

Delivery Model

The Graduate Diploma in Learning and Technology is delivered as a blended program (incorporating online learning with an on-campus residency), as well as a purely online model.

Pre-Residency
Students begin the Graduate Diploma in Learning and Technology program with a very short online pre-residency session that introduces them to the instructor, familiarizes them with the course content and materials, and connects them with other students in the program. This blended learning format allows students to benefit from the synergy of on-campus learning and direct interaction with leading faculty members, while still meeting the demands of career and lifestyle. The result is accessible, high quality learning with minimal professional disruption.

Residency
The 10-day residency is a carefully designed period of intense academic study in which students complete approximately 75 per cent of two courses – Learning Theory and Introduction to Research. The schedule of instruction and studying during the residency is structured to optimize the face-to-face access to instructors, develop networks with fellow students, and access the support services of the university if required. The typical daily schedule is from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Team meetings, homework, and readings are done outside of these hours.

Online Learning
Distance courses are delivered entirely online through innovative, easy to use Internet technologies. Participants draw upon web resources as well as more traditional print media, while using online discussion groups and drop boxes to work towards the electronic submission of assignments. Prior to the beginning of each course, students are provided with a list of resources including textbooks and/or online readings, plus a detailed course schedule. Learning activities and assignments are designed to allow participants to identify the practical applications of the course content and to work with others to construct both a personal and shared meaning from their experiences.

Each course requires a level of effort of approximately 10 hours per week. This varies from student to student and becomes easier as students familiarize themselves with Royal Roads University's distance learning technologies, and learn how to work effectively with team members in a virtual setting.

COURSE OVERVIEW

The course will give students a fundamental understanding of the underlying technologies and workflows in use in the industry, with the opportunity to specialise in one chosen area. It offers a rigorous curriculum that combines theoretical training in a number of production technology disciplines with industry work experience placements and intensive training, enabling students to develop their own skills and understanding to provide a strong basis for a career in a wide range of relevant areas within television production.

Across the TV and film industries emerging technologies are enabling new creative opportunities both directly through production equipment and techniques and indirectly through new distribution platforms. The need for production technologists skilled in the latest developments is increasing, with numerous skills gaps apparent in the employment market. Moreover, some 60% of Broadcast engineers across Europe are within 10 years of retirement, according to the BBC Academy website. Specialists in a number of areas of Production Technology are in great demand from broadcasters, facilities companies, equipment manufacturers and systems integrators.

Production Technology is a very wide field covering traditional live studio and transmission support through to outside broadcasts, workflow design, media asset management and distribution systems across multiple delivery platforms – thus the potential career paths of graduates are numerous and varied.

Technology, both traditional and new, forms an essential part of the creative process and NFTS students are engaged in more productions as part of the curriculum than any of our competitors.

The course will provide:

- an in depth understanding of traditional and new technology and workflows enabling and supporting creation of content and delivery to broadcast and online services
- cutting-edge technological expertise in all stages of media production
- optional units and a professional placement with an industry partner allowing a specialised focus on an aspect of production technology

Programme description

This LLM in Information Technology Law promotes advanced knowledge and understanding of information technology law, in its broadest sense, within international, European and domestic settings. You will develop an understanding of information technology law not just in its legal but also its social, ethical, cultural and commercial contexts.

The programme gives you the opportunity to study subjects where IT law interfaces with other disciplinary dimensions of the law, with modules in intellectual property law, commercial law and medical law.

This programme focuses on the regulatory framework that governs information technology within international, European and domestic settings.

The programme is highly topical, exploring the second generation - and sometimes even third generation - of regulation that has evolved from the legal framework of the early 2000s. New developments in technology are also a key focus, as these force us to constantly review the very concept of information technology and appropriate legal responses.

Information technology regulation operates across jurisdictions, and a cross-fertilisation of regulatory responses occurs at the interface between, domestic, regional and international law. Our aim is to enable you to understand this cross-fertilisation, to be able to contextualise it and place yourself within it.

Online learning

Our distance learning courses are delivered through eSCRIPT, our flexible online learning environment.

Through eSCRIPT you will access learning materials and interact with your tutor and fellow students. eSCRIPT is accessible through the internet from any computer. A fast connection is an advantage, but you do not need any special equipment, applications or plug-ins to use it.

We aim to provide challenging, research-led teaching with students benefiting from the expertise of a multidisciplinary team of tutors and the results of innovative cross-cutting research of the highest quality

Programme structure

You must complete a total of six courses (120 credit points), four of which must be core IT law courses, and complete a dissertation (60 credit points) over your chosen period of study.

Core courses:

Communications Law
Electronic Commerce Law
Forensic Computing: Electronic Evidence
Information: Control and Power
Information Technology Law
Law of Robotics
International and European Media Law

Learning outcomes

By the end of your studies you should emerge with an understanding of information technology law not just in its legal but also its social, ethical, cultural and commercial contexts.

Career opportunities

Graduates of our online distance learning programmes progress to a range of careers in Law and related legal fields, including work in local and international firms, government legal departments, other public institutions, international organisations and in academia.

The programmes are also an ideal platform for advanced research.

Programme overview

This is an exciting programme which offers a critical, contextual and practical approach to digital media and technology. It problematises approaches to the 'new' media in academic and professional debate, especially those which overemphasise the potential for radical social change led by a homogenised technology itself.

The programme is defined by its resistance to technological determinism and its insistence on the importance of addressing the social and historical contexts within which a range of media technologies are employed. In order to provide a contextual framework and facilitate the conceptualisation of digital media and technologies as fully cultural forms and processes, the programme will draw on a range of disciplines including: media and cultural studies, sociology, anthropology and philosophy. However, the programme will remain focused on key contemporary concerns about the potential role of digital media in society and on refiguring the contours of the 'new' media debate.

The programme offers two pathways. Pathway 1 addresses central theoretical and conceptual concerns relating to digital media. Pathway 2 combines theoretical analysis and practical work, offering students the opportunity to explore new media theories and concepts in practice. Pathway 2 is primarily aimed at students who already have some experience in one of the areas on offer: documentary; digital photography and image making; journalism; writing. It is meant to appeal to media industry professionals who are keen to reflect critically on their practice within a structured learning environment, graduates of practice-based courses but also those who have gained their practical experience in documentary; digital photography and image making; journalism or writing in informal settings.

Programme structure

The first compulsory core course is Digital Media - critical perspectives and this is taught in a small workshop format in the Autumn term. This course functions as a foundation for the second core course and offers students a map of the key debates in digital media. The course is taught in ten two hour workshop sessions and is supported by the provision of one-to-one tutorials.

The second compulsory core course is Technology and Cultural Form - debates, models, dialogues and this develops questions of technology, power, politics and subjectivity which were introduced in the first core course. The first part of this course highlights the key conceptual concerns of a contextualised approach to digital media plus the relevant debates and models formulated by key figures in the field. The second part of this course aims to generate a dialogue between theoreticians and practitioners around some of the most intellectually stimulating, contentious and contemporary ideas in the field without necessarily seeking a resolution. This course is taught in ten two hour workshop sessions during the Spring term and is supported by the weekly provision of one-to-one tutorials.

Students are required to take options from the lists provided by the Media and Communications, Anthropology, Comparative Literature and Sociology Departments as well as the Centre for Cultural Studies. Examples might include: After New Media, Nature and Culture, Cultural Theory, Globalisation, Risk and Control, Embodiment and Experience, Political Communications. Options are taught primarily through lectures and seminars and take place in the Autumn or Spring terms.

Each student's option profile is discussed with the programme convenor in order to ensure that the balance of subject-specific topics is appropriate for the individual concerned. Option courses are taught primarily through lectures, seminars and tutorials and take place in the Autumn or Spring terms.

All students are required to produce either a 12,000 word dissertation on a topic agreed by the student and supervisor or a practice/theory project in the area of documentary, photography and image making, journalism or fiction. The length of the practical element is dependent on the media and the form used and will be agreed in advance with the supervisor. It will, however, be comparable with practical projects undertaken in practice MA programmes in the relevant field. Students undertaking the practice/theory project will also be expected to submit a 3-4000 word analysis of their practice which locates it within the theoretical debates explored in the MA as a whole. This essay may be presented as a separate document or as an integral part of the project depending on the nature of the project and by a agreement with both theory and practice supervisors.

Programme outcomes

The programme's subject specific learning outcomes require students to analyse and contextualise developments in digital media and technology with reference to key debates in the history, sociology, anthropology and philosophy of the media. Students who opt for the practice/theory pathway will also be required to produce material of publishable or broadcast standard and to evaluate the ways in which theoretical and practical insights intersect. All students will develop a wide range of transferable qualities and skills necessary for employment in related or unrelated areas. These are described by the Quality Assurance Agency as: 'the exercise of initiative and personal responsibility, decision-making in complex and unpredictable situations, and the independent learning ability required for continuing professional development'.

By the end of the programme students will be able to:

-Map and critically evaluate key debates in the field of new media
-Analyse and contextualise current and future developments in digital media and technology
-Evaluate and articulate key historical, sociological, anthropological and philosophical approaches to the study of digital media and technology
-Demonstrate in-depth knowledge of at least four differing areas of inquiry
-Demonstrate an advanced level of conceptual knowledge and (where relevant) practical skill appropriate for a sustained piece of work in the field
-Prepare and deliver clearly argued and informed work
-Locate, retrieve and present relevant information for a specific project
-Manage a complex array of competing demands and work effectively to a deadline
-Work resourcefully and independently
-Think critically and/or work practically within a given context

Skills

We provide graduates with skills that are cutting edge: in the critical analysis and/or creative production of digital media; in the disciplinary knowledge and conceptual frameworks necessary for current and future forms of media and technology; in the awareness of how digital media and technologies are re-shaping society from the ways we communicate (through social media and web 2.0) to the increasingly ‘smart’ environments in which we live.

Careers

Our programme provides a theory and practice pathway and prepares students for work in the following areas:

-media and creative industries; advertising, marketing and PR (graduates of the MA Digital Media have found work with Virgin Media, Google, the BBC and other leading organisations worldwide)
-research and academia (graduates from this programme have gone on to study for PhD degrees in higher education institutions around the world and also here with us)
-media production and new media art (graduates have exhibited, published and produced work in photography, journalism, TV, documentary, film and multimedia)

Graduate Ekaterina discusses her career:

"I work for a company, called Visual DNA, which already sounds like life happening After New Media. The company is the largest data provider in Europe and is totally multinational. We actually try to analyse human visual DNA, you memories, feelings, thoughts about the future, anticipations, etc by creating personality quizzes where instead of verbal answers we tend to use images.

My role is as Creative Developer. It involves working with images from concept to finding/shooting and post-production. My qualifications perfectly matched what they’ve been looking for, Digital Media rocks!

My tip for the new-to-be-graduates is this: physically go to places and companies and talk to people. It really opens up loads of possibilities, and when I tell someone where I’ve graduated from they look impressed, and there is some sort of respect coming from them."
