Education (Information Technology) - MEd

Course content

This program was designed to facilitate the educational use of information technology in a wide variety of settings. The program will be of interest to educators at all levels, including K-12 teachers, school administrators, those in the post-secondary system, business and industry, as well as those in most other adult learning situations. While the co-operatively-offered degree may be awarded at convocation at either CBU or MUN, the degree is conferred by MUN.

Rationale and Goals
The graduate programme in Information Technology is offered in partnership with the Cape Breton University (CBU). It is designed to facilitate the educational use of information technology in a wide variety of settings. The programme will be of interest to educators at all levels including K-12 teachers, school administrators, those in the post-secondary system, business and industry, as well as those in most other adult learning situations.

Information technology in this Master of Education programme encompasses computer, communications, networking and multi-media applications. The overall intent of the programme is to:
-Provide educators with skill sets and pedagogical expertise that will enable them to address computer and related information technology in a teaching/learning situation.
-Develop potential information technology leaders for the educational system.
-Develop instructional designers, for a variety of educational settings, who are able to combine information technology with learning theory to enhance curriculum development and delivery.
-Provide a basis for the continued professional development of educators in the area of information technology.
-Develop an awareness of the applications of information technology in a wide variety of educational contexts.
-Develop research expertise and potential in the use and application of information technology for teaching and learning purposes.

Candidates for the programme will have attained, prior to acceptance, some fundamental knowledge and skills with respect to information technology through prerequisite experiences, and have attained a recognised undergraduate degree in an appropriate discipline with at least a second class standing (see specific regulations for details). The programme components are designed to enable candidates to build on their prior experience through the development of pedagogical links and information technology applications. It is intended that the programme be offered primarily as a part-time programme through distance delivered courses, with other delivery formats to be considered/utilised where feasible. Access to specific computer hardware, software, and the internet is required and will be the responsibility of each candidate.
