Course content

If you are an education professional who wants to take the next step in your career, then this course will provide the opportunity to enhance your CV by deepening your knowledge of contemporary developments in technology enhanced learning and gaining a Masters qualification from a prestigious UK university.

The programme is delivered by influential, research-active tutors from our well-respected Educational Research Department, which specialises in the delivery of online postgraduate programmes. You will benefit from their range and depth of knowledge and their recent research in areas such as the learning sciences, ubiquitous technologies, digital inclusion, digital literacies, digital semiotics, authentic accessibility, digital games, and critical pedagogy. You will be encouraged to draw from your own personal and professional experience and to work closely with peers in a vibrant and supportive online environment.
You will have the space to develop your own understanding, clarify misconceptions, raise questions, and expand your knowledge on a range of matters related to the educational uses of technology. While the course is delivered online, there will be opportunities if you wish to visit the department and participate in research activities. Some students opt to visit their tutor in person, however ample provision is made for virtual interactions. Participants undertake four modules (30 credits each) plus a dissertation (60 credits).
A dedicated module will introduce you to a variety of research methods and approaches, and will help you to apply these new skills to your own practice via a small, tutor-supported research project. This individual study module is carefully designed to prepare you for your research dissertation.
The Masters in Technology Enhanced Learning is suitable for teachers, educators, consultants, policy makers, and experienced professionals in all areas of education either in public or private organisations, as well as those who wish to develop their understanding of the theory, practice, and research of technology enhanced learning. The programme provides a potential route to our PhD in E-Research and Technology Enhanced Learning, as well as leading to career change or progression for professional practitioners.
