Course content

Technology is increasingly a key element in effective education and training. The web, mobile devices, interactive white boards, Virtual Learning Environments, blogging, wikis and email are tools that you may be able to use in your teaching. But how effective are they at supporting learning? New pedagogical models such as massively open online courses (MOOCs), learning analytics where data is used to analyse and improve learning, and rhizomatic learning are all explained and critically examined.

If you're a teacher, trainer or learning technologist looking to enhance your skills around the integration, research and management of technology to enhance learning, then this course could be for you.You'll explore the use of technology in your particular field, develop technical skills, including blogs, wikis and other social media, deepen your understanding of frameworks and look at how technology can enhance and support learning.A strong interest in developing teaching using information and communication technology is key - being an IT expert is not. The course is tailored around you.Choose from a range of options to match your role, experience or organisation to help you progress as an informed, reflective and inspirational practitioner.

This course combines making a difference in your particular teaching/training context with learning about how to undertake research in a systematic and rigours manner.
