The MA Learning, Technology and Education (Online) course is suitable for those interested in the design and implementation of technology-supported learning in all phases of education.
You will learn through:
-wholly online part-time study -interaction with specialist tutors and resources -experience of a range of technologies -supported self study and collaborative activities
Your studies will be supported by:
-an intensive induction workshop -involvement in an online community of practice -personalised guidance for your academic writing
The course aims is to provide a very sound basis for informed and reflective practice in all areas of technologies in use in education. It explores learning technologies through a consideration of societal and social levels of organisation (e.g. governments, institutions, and learning communities) as well as the psychological level that is concerned with the individual’s experience of learning or teaching.
The course starts in August and can be completed over two years' part-time study. There are also Postgraduate Diploma and Certificate exit points.
The course comprises three core modules and you can then choose one of two elective options. The MA programme is completed with a 60-credit dissertation. The modules and dissertation support are offered wholly online through a series of supported self-study and online collaborative activities within the university virtual learning environment (VLE).
Completing the course will require you to engage with the online activities on a weekly basis. The set activities will be based on the online materials that you are provided and require on average 10-12 hours of study each week. Those activities that are collaborative will require frequent and regular online presence.
