Our MA Digital Teaching and Learning (online) 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 online 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. It provides a unique perspective on the theories that underpin successful learning, teaching and innovation within the fast-moving digital world. With an advanced education degree from the University of Nottingham, you will graduate with all the knowledge, practical skills and confidence to pursue your career goals.
The taught element of the course is made up of 120 credits, plus a 60-credit dissertation. It can be completed part-time over approximately two years, with a further eight months for the dissertation.
Each 30-credit module is assessed by the equivalent of a 6,000-word written portfolio, which can include written assignments and research methods. To complete the masters, you must achieve a pass of 50% on each assignment.
2:2 (or international equivalent). An interest in how you can use digital technologies to transform teaching and learning is important. Otherwise, some previous experience of teaching can also be helpful (this could be at any level, country or sector and could be paid or voluntary). Other examples of useful experience or interest include education management, or administration, software development, education publishing or technologies. IELTS: 6.5 (no less than 6.0 in any element).
