• State-of-the-art knowledge of how people learn

• Relevant skills of applying technology for individual and group learning

• Capability to design and implement technology-enhanced learning in school and working life contexts

Learning, Education and Technology (LET) is a full-time two-year international master’s programme. After completing the programme, students are awarded a Master of Arts (Education) degree. The core of the education consists of three theoretical viewpoints: self-regulated learning, collaborative learning, and technology-enhanced learning. Each of these aspects is discussed both in theory and in practice. The programme aims to develop knowledge and competencies needed in modern education, namely skills for designing, conducting, assessing and analysing versatile learning situations both in face-to-face and technology-enhanced learning contexts. Working-life connections are highlighted throughout the programme. The studies are implemented in collaboration with national and international research and teaching partners.

LET programme is built on over 20 years of groundbreaking research in the Learning and Educational Technology Research Unit. The unit performs top research on learning sciences in collaboration with international networks by investigating how people learn. LET students are in close connection with the latest research in their everyday studies.

Knowledge about how people learn, especially through collaboration and teamwork, is an essential factor in today’s working life. Also, flexible and versatile use of information and communication technology is one key competence in today’s education. The master’s programme equips the students with a combination of strong theoretical knowledge of learning and collaboration, and diverse use of technology and social media that promotes learning. Further, while studying in an international master’s programme, students are able to develop their language skills and skills for multicultural collaboration.

Graduates from the programme are competent in duties where knowledge of learning processes and use of technology are needed. This degree does not constitute a formal teaching qualification as such but students’ educational background, working experience and own interests affect the career paths of the graduates.

Examples of career paths:

• Educator

• Researcher

• Educational consultant

• Human resources developer

• Project leader

• Coordinator

• Administrator in both the private and public sectors

• Expert in virtual learning

• Designers of technology-enhanced learning
