Course summary

Our MA Digital Teaching and Learning course aims to strengthen your understanding of learning in the digital age and explore how digital technology can transform the teaching and learning experience. This course increases your knowledge of digital technologies as resources for learning. You will evaluate the use of such technologies in educational contexts and assess how new learning technology can be implemented at a variety of levels in both formal and informal education. You will also analyse contemporary ideas and theories about learning from both cognitive and socio-cultural perspectives, then consider these against the wider social debates that impact on technology enhanced learning. It is ideal for working teachers who want to gain an advanced understanding of how digital technologies could be used in the classroom, or wish to go onto a PhD. This course is informed by the work of the Learning Sciences Research Institute and draws on expertise from psychology, computer science and education.
