This Master's degree in learning technologies provides the technical and pedagogical knowledge necessary for designing, developing and evaluating learning technologies from the perspective of state-of-the-art artificial intelligence and computer science techniques, learning theory and teaching practice. It is ideal for those with a background in computing (academic or practitioner) and also for those without a computing background. It develops a sound foundation for entry to a career in learning technologies or to a research degree in the subject.
This Master's programme is targeted towards those with a computing background (academic or practitioner), who wish to move into a career in the development of learning technologies, or to increase their pedagogical and technical knowledge, if they are already working in the learning technologies sector. It will also appeal to those who wish to undertake a 1-year (or 2 years part-time) postgraduate degree with a view to continuing onto an MPhil/PhD based at the joint Birkbeck/UCL London Knowledge Lab.
The programme is also suitable for those without a computing background, who wish to gain knowledge of both the computer science and the learning theory that together underpin the development of learning technologies.
Why study this course at Birkbeck?
Provides academic grounding for the profession of learning technologist. Taught by senior academics from 2 world-class departments at Birkbeck and the UCL Institute of Education. You will have access to the world-class facilities at both institutions. Distinctive in its twin focus on computer science and learning theory that together underpin the optimal development of learning technologies. You will have 24-hour access to several laboratories of networked PCs with a range of language compilers, database and other application software. We are connected, via the SuperJANET network, to the computers of other academic institutions in London, elsewhere in the UK and abroad.
