MSc Technology Enhanced Learning

You will be taught through a series of lectures and seminars and supported by Study Guide resources, which include preparation for and follow up to teaching activities. This directed independent work is an important part of the course, while lectures enable the ideas of each module to be considered. Seminar work will enable you to develop your understanding of these ideas and discuss them in a range of professionally relevant contexts. Activities in seminars include a variety of active learning approaches including discussion, group work, presentations, question and answer sessions, and individual tasks. Preparation for the assignment will involve wide reading and critical reflection on the main concepts of the programme.

You will take four taught modules (each worth 30 credits): two specialised core modules in Technology Enhanced Learning, a research method module, and an optional module. In addition, there is a supervised dissertation (60 credits).

The specialised core modules are:

Improving Computer Education

This module will give you an appreciation of industrial software development practices so that you can help teachers develop better strategies for selecting the type of technology to use in an educational setting, and to help them apply and use realistic case studies that support computing education.

21st Century Technology

In this module you will explore the different ways of understanding the origins, limitations, and possible consequences of the educational uses of technology.

Applicants for the programmes must normally be graduates of this or another University or of the C.N.A.A., with an upper 2nd class honours or above (successful completion of a masters level PGCE will classify as 'above'), or have other specially approved qualifications which satisfy the Admissions Sub-Committee that they are suitably qualified to undertake the programme.

Teaching experience may be considered appropriate in some cases (see pathway specific specifications). However all students must normally demonstrate a personal or professional interest in the academic study of education.

English Language requirements
