Course content

The Masters in Digital Education is a part-time online distance learning programme that will equip you with the skills you need to further your career in the field of digital education.

If you’re a learning technologist, education professional or teacher looking to enhance your knowledge of digital education and broaden your career opportunities then this qualification is for you. This online Masters degree will help you grasp the theories underpinning digital education, learn to use and evaluate the latest learning technologies, and look towards future developments in the field.

Specialist modules such as Digital Education in Practice and Designing Digital Education will help you acquire work-based practical skills, and our excellence in digital education means you will have the opportunity to engage, collaborate and learn in creative ways at a pace that suits you.

You’ll benefit from studying digital education practice whilst being an online learner yourself, and the interactive, collaborative and community-based delivery of this Masters programme will provide opportunities to engage with fellow professionals while harnessing the expertise of our academic staff.

In a field where research can often overstate conclusions from short-term interventions, you will learn to approach research critically and develop skills to carry out research and evaluations in your own professional settings both during and after the programme.

Course options – PGCert, PGDip and Masters

This Masters is part of a suite of postgraduate programmes available in Digital Education at Leeds.

We offer PGCert, PGDip and Masters level options, all by online distance learning, as we know that not everyone can commit the time required for a full masters and it can be a challenge to balance professional development with work and home life.
