Course content

This innovative, four year part-time structured Doctoral Programme combines online learning and residential teaching. It is for motivated, self-managing individuals who work in positions of influence in any sector of education wishing to develop their e-learning research and practice.

Participants receive structured support in research methodologies and practice and undertake small-scale studies related to their professional environments. This is followed by a period of intensive individual research supervised by an expert in the field. Participants benefit from a structured set of modules (over two years), residential events, and an online learning community through which they receive support from other participants and tutors.
