Course content

MA English Language Teaching and Digital Technologies is a distinctive part-time, distance learning programme that allows you, as a practising teacher, to develop your disciplinary expertise in the areas of language education and technology-enhanced education.

Designed to support your professional development, you can study at the same time as working and apply what you learn directly to your particular teaching context.

The programme enables you to acquire an in-depth, specialist knowledge and a mastery of techniques relevant to the teaching of the English Language with a specific focus on digital technologies.

You will critically and creatively evaluate current issues, research and advanced scholarship in the field of technology and English Language learning and teaching, and acquire a sophisticated understanding of concepts, information and techniques at the forefront of the discipline.

Course content

In your first year, you will examine the ways that teachers of foreign languages teach the skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking. You will also consider the theories that underpin technology-enhanced learning and explore a variety of digital language learning and teaching tools.

You then expand upon this knowledge in your second year. We introduce you to key concepts and theories related to second language development and the factors and processes that contribute to the learning of languages. You will explore what it means to becomes proficient in a second language, and analyse language in terms of sounds, words, grammar and discourse.

Throughout your studies, you will develop the knowledge and skills to enable you to carry out a small-scale piece of research related to your own interests within language learning and digital technology. You’ll submit this dissertation by the end of the programme.
